Get quotes to plant shrubs

A happy garden is one filled with colour all year round, with the beds and shrubs kept in good condition, tidying them from summer overgrowth and weeds to really show off the mix of plants and shrubs in the garden. It is so important to choose shrubs that will flower at different times of year and always a personal favourite, is choosing bee-loving plants and shrubs. Having shrubs in every flower bed means that even during winter there will be some green in each bed and the beauty of shrubs is that they are low maintenance.

How much will it cost to plant shrubs in my beds?

The cost of planting shrubs in your flower beds is dependent on the type of shrubs you choose. Shrubs can be as little as £3 for a small Hebe to £200 for a large Hibiscus. The price also varies on the size pot you buy, for example a herb shrub of lavender a small 1lt pot might cost £5 whereas a bigger more established extra large lavender in a 5lt pot will cost £26. If you are starting out with a small budget and need to supply a few beds, then the best way to go about it is to buy varied shrubs in smaller pots, it just takes the patience of one summer to see them doubling their size in growth for the following year.
