Buxus Boxes – have fun with Box Topiary Squares

Let your imagination run wild and create strong geometric shapes in your garden with our Box Topiary Squares! These may be small plants but when planted together, they can transform your garden adding an attractive dense, evergreen structure that will look great all year round. Over time, as they become established, the effect will be striking. The other point to remember about Box (Buxus Sempervirens) is that it is slow growing so maintaining your topiary shape is not that difficult – and you can get away with trimming just once per year.

Buddha Eden Garden – The Largest Oriental Garden In Europe

Bacalhoa Buddha Eden Garden
It is no secret that we’re lovers of Oriental garden design at Paramount Plants. Earlier this year, we discovered a most surprising find, just one hour north of Lisbon at Quinta Dos Loridos, you will find the Buddha Eden Garden. An ambitious Oriental Peace Garden which is in fact the largest oriental garden in Europe.
We were intrigued to find out more… conceived and created in 2001, by the wealthy art patron José Berardo, the garden occupies over 35 hectares and welcomes everyone in an atmosphere of peace and tranquility, embracing a multi faith philosophy, to promote peace and understanding. Central to its success as a garden, is not surprisingly the planting itself, yes the statuary is impressive but it is the nature and planting that steals the show…

Ferns – Perfect Plants for shade

Ferns - Perfect Plants for shade
Ferns are an elegant solution when seeking plants for shade

Hundreds of millions of years old, ferns are among the most ancient of our flora. The fact that ferns don’t flower is more than made up for by their highly decorative fronds or leaves. Many ferns originated in woodland or densely forested areas where little sunlight could penetrate. Their resulting shade-loving characteristics make ferns one of the best plants to brighten up those shady or north facing areas of the garden where something green but nonetheless ornamental is required.
