Plant seasonal summer flowers
Introducing seasonal and colourful plants to an outdoor space is an inexpensive and immediate way to inject a dose of summer to any area. Discover some of the prettiest petals to plant in your garden this summer:
Portulaca – These beautiful blooms love high temperatures and grow well in sunlight – perfect for the Australian summer. Portulacas come in a variety of colours such as pinks, oranges, yellows and reds which look great in hanging baskets, barrel planters or flower beds.
Marigold – Marigolds grow well in warmer temperatures and are a low maintenance plant to care for during summer. They produce orange, yellow and coppery foliage – ideal for brightening up any garden space.

Let there be light

Try stringing fairy lights through a pergola or up the trunk of a tree to create a pretty party atmosphere. Or for added warmth, install a fire pit. Not only will this act as a great source of heat on cooler evenings, it can also be used for toasting marshmallows – a fun, evening activity for all!
