National Conifer Week is set to take place from 24 September ? 2 October 2016 with many garden centres across the country highlighting conifers with eye catching displays, demonstrating the variety and choice of conifers available.

Conifers have several advantages for all types of garden; many have good aesthetic qualities, they are low maintenance and they provide structure and colour all year round.

From a small balcony with room for a container, to acres of grounds with space, conifers can add another dimension to any garden. Conifers can also add year-round drama, whether as a backdrop, a standalone feature, or in a border with other plants.

They are extremely versatile, coming in an amazingly diverse range of shades, textures, shapes and sizes. A potted conifer can be used to brighten up a doorstep or balcony, whilst planted conifers can create height and add fantastic accent pieces to any garden.
