Ground Cover Plants

Ground cover plants are extremely useful for dealing with difficult areas in the garden, and can be used as a quick fix for landscaping problems. They can be low-growing or tall and showy, and work by making a dense covering over the soil, which prevents soil from washing away and weeds from establishing. It’s important to space these plants closely enough when you plant them so they grow together quickly and form an impenetrable barrier to weeds. Once these dependable and hard-working plants are established they’re virtually maintenance-free. Water, feed and weed them and these bright, easy plants will give you months of colour and lots of bee-friendly flowers.
