Creating a sense of the outdoors in a home need not only be for those with large spaces, big budgets or green fingers; the international 2018 gardening trend “working with what you have” is a concept that aligns and a focus of, this year’s East Coast Radio House & Garden Show’s theme “Home is Where the Heart is”.

This trend builds on the concept that regardless of the kind of dwelling a family calls home, creating the ideal home differs on how the entire space is used depending on the unique needs, hobbies, interests and patterns of its unique occupants. Modern gardening, is no different, and as such should reflect each family’s personality, embrace city living and unite those who live in it.

“As the technological age advances, it has never been so important to establish a relaxed space for reflection, meditation or winding down from a busy day. Incorporating plants and rustic furniture into a space brings a sense of nature into urban life,” says Show Director, Cairey Baxter-Bruce.

Prepare to be inspired by landscaped garden features, gain insight and go home with indoor, outdoor, seasonal and edible plants in the popular Green Fingers area.
