Plants for urban city gardens

Browse our selection of the best plants for small, urban city gardens. Inner city gardens tend to be small, so you’ll be looking for stalwart plants that deliver lots of impact on a modest footprint. Plants for city gardens need to have a long season of interest with a long flowering period, ornamental structures and forms and ornamental foliage. We recommend sticking to a limited range of colours and choosing at least one or two architectural plants to achieve the wow factor. Climbers can help provide vertical ascent, delivering beautiful flowers and foliage without taking up much floor space. You might also want to choose some wildlife attracting plants – bees, butterflies and other beneficial insects will be attracted by their rich nectar even in city locations. Small Japanese acers work well in containers on small patios or balconies, while fragrant plants like lavender and common jasmine can add the wonderful ingredient of scent close to your home.
