Be inspired by... the great outdoors
June is here and everything has transformed - plants and shrubs are in full bloom and we’re making the most of the sunny weather by spending more time outside. Everything feels new and fresh, and there’s a friendly buzz of infectious cheerfulness in the air as we all get together to share good times with family and friends.
Gardens aren’t just an outdoor space, they’re an extension of the home and a wonderful place to relax or entertain others. Take a look at our range of outdoor plants and treat a loved one, or even yourself, to a beautiful planter or tree. And whether the garden in mind is large or small, contemporary or traditional, our range of outdoor plants has something for every space.
Planters are a great way to bring instant colour to any outdoor space and with a wide range of sizes and prices to choose from, you’re sure to find one that suits.
For a bold statement, pick one of our vibrant single-variety planters such as British Pinks, or if choosing for a hardscaped area, soften the look with a mixed planter to create a miniature retreat.

Chris’ top tip for June...
‘To keep outdoor plants flowering as long as possible, regularly dead-head them as this will encourage new buds. And donât forget to do the same for herbs, by pinching out the leaves - taking a few minutes everyday will keep everything looking their best.’
Floral Designer Chris Wood has been active in Horticulture and Floristry for over 25 years, and has worked with Waitrose for nearly 15 years.
