Add Colour To Your Garden In Winter

Winter Gardens

Winter is here and your garden may seem dormant and lifeless, but it does not have to be. With the right planning and technique, you can add a splash of colour to your winter garden that will brighten up even the gloomiest of days.

In this blog post, we will be discussing some easy and effective ways to add colour to your garden in the colder months.

1. Choose vibrant winter-blooming plants

When selecting plants for your winter garden, opt for varieties that bloom during the colder months. Pansies, heather, hellebores, and cyclamen are excellent choices that come in a range of bright hues that will instantly add a pop of colour to your garden.

You can also think about adding evergreens such as boxwood and conifers with colourful needles in shades of gold, blue, or green.

2. Incorporate colourful foliage

Plants with coloured leaves or berries can also help add colour to your winter garden. Think about incorporating varieties of shrubs like the red-twig dogwood, which has striking red branches, or the variegated euonymus, which has gorgeous pink and white leaves.

3. Add colourful containers

Containers filled with brightly coloured flowers can help brighten up the dreary landscape. Don’t be afraid to mix and match colours and textures. Reds, yellows, and oranges will add a warm glow to your garden. Mix them with blues and purples for a stunning contrast.

4. Make use of garden decor

Another easy way to add colour is by incorporating decorative elements into your garden design. Consider introducing garden ornaments, birdbaths, or bird feeders painted in bright colours.

You can also provide nesting boxes and habitats for local wildlife, which will bring even more life and colour to your garden.

5. Don’t forget about lighting

For added impact, consider adding lighting to your garden. Outdoor lights can provide a colourful and magical experience, particularly during the dark winter nights. Use coloured bulbs or string lights to create a festive feel.


Winter gardens can be just as beautiful and colourful as summer gardens. By selecting the right plants, foliage, containers, and adding garden decor and lighting, your garden can bloom with life all year round.

So, get creative and add a burst of colour to your garden this winter season.
