ABOUT POTS IN BLOOM
My name is Beth Atkinson and I am a qualified Garden Designer who set up Pots in Bloom in 2012. I am very aware that not many of us can afford hefty landscaping costs - so I wanted to provide a service that made Garden Design more accessible and affordable.
After qualifying as a Garden Designer I would sit in my garden, pondering the fabulous things I could now do to the space. However, I simply couldn't afford it which really frustrated me. My solution - garden containers. I began to plant up literally anything that I could get my hands on and developed a healthy addiction to reclaim yards!
It is amazing how a carefully selected group of well-planted containers can transform a space - and at a fraction of the price of landscaping. Those who have tiny gardens and tight budgets can still reap the rewards of a beautiful garden but in a more managable and economical manner.
It then occured to me that garden pots solved a whole host of problems...
Bring The Outdoors closer to home - those with no garden could still be greeted by a lush window box spilling greenery in through your kitchen window.
People who can't afford landscaping - you can still make dramatic changes with containers.
Over-priced Cut Bouquets - florists are extremely expensive and the flowers last for no time at all. Buying a Pots in Bloom allows you to constantly reuse the container. Plus, the plants can be put out into your garden beds for years more pleasure. It seems like a far more economical but equally beautiful gift!
Your own Mini-Garden - It is not just gardens that provide all-year-interest, so can containers when they are planted with a careful selection of bulbs, perrenials, bedding plants, shrubs, trees and grasses.
Mobile, never-a-dull-moment containers - these mini-gardens can also be moved about to suit your mood and occasion - you never have to commit to one setting and can move them about to your hearts content!
Property rental - they are an ideal solution for those renting their properties as your containers can move from home-to-home with you.
