GROUND COVERS
There's no sense leaving bare ground in the garden when you can grow a wide range of colourful and intriguing ground covers. In fact, ground covers are often the finishing touch in a display. They can occupy the front of the border or trail over the edge of a wall or container creating a textural, foliage, and flower contrast with surrounding plants and taking your garden to the next level!
