Lush Living

Olive greens, silvery greys and touches of metallics to offset the naturals … we’re going lush meets luxe this summer

We took inspiration for the glam greens and metallics on our garden pages from this inviting arrangement.

Modern hurricane pendants are oh-so-trendy and complement any decor style. The Parkhurst range from The Lighting Warehouse hits the mark … it’s modern with amalgamate faint Georgian-inspired undertones and varied designs. These pieces work in- and outside … we particularly fancy them for our patio. From R1399. Details:

Flavoursome potted edibles for your patio

Imagine having deliciously fragrant, pickable sweet basil at your fingertips. Basil Dolce Fresca is a patio basil that grows perfectly in a pot, keeps its compact bushy shape and doesn’t get leggy,         the way garden varieties tend to do. Plants grow 30-36cm high, with an excellent leaf yield. This basil has won horticultural awards including the All-American Selections vegetable category for its sweet, tender leaves and ornamental shape. Use the leaves for pesto, with pasta and in any Mediterranean-inspired dish. A great patio edible.
