TV garden expert David Domoney provides conservatory and garden tips from the Hampton Court Palace Flower Show

Visitors to last week’s Hampton Court Palace Flower Show may not have had perfect summer weather but they were able to pick up some top conservatory and garden tips from TV garden expert David Domoney in the Hampton Grapevine Theatre, sponsored by conservatory, door and window double glazing specialist Anglian Home Improvements, to help them make the most of their garden, rain or shine.

David Domoney, who is currently appearing on ITV’s Love Your Garden with Alan Titchmarsh, provided some great ideas for bringing the best of your garden into and around your home – meaning you can enjoy the benefits and beauty of a garden all year round.

“Tropical plants such as Bird of Paradise and citrus fruit grow well in a conservatory, adding a splash of colour and fragrance to your home,” says David. “It’s important to ensure that your plants are well cared for though as conservatories can get very hot when the sun shines. Technology such as Anglian’s Solaroof limits heat build-up in summer and reduces UV penetration, while automatic electronic or thermostatic roof vents will allow air to circulate through the conservatory to keep the plants in top condition. Better still, if you have bi-fold doors, which are my personal favourite, you can open the whole side of the conservatory to give the plants plenty of fresh air, enjoying a sense of stylish outdoor living at the same time.”

According to David, external window boxes are becoming more popular and are another way to bring a little of the garden indoors. He recommends planting pretty and fragrant varieties such as dwarf lavender that will bring colour and scent into the home, or planting herbs such as oregano, sage and parsley by a kitchen window to provide fresh ingredients within easy reach.

Hanging baskets and tubs at the base of the front door are another way to improve the look of your home, making it instantly more appealing. They can be changed with the season to maintain a fresh, colourful look, while structured topiary such as trained box will lend a slightly regal feeling to the entrance to your home. Planting jasmine close to the front door will also add a heavenly scent to complete an impressive welcome for your guests.
