The Jungle is full to the brim with bold, dramatic plants that will turn your garden into a lush, verdant refuge, far from the madding crowd. A theme where foliage of all shapes and sizes creates a rich backdrop for surprising pops of vibrant colour - perfect for a shady garden, basement or terrace but happy in sun too.

Luxurious canopies are formed by majestic tree ferns and palms, with shape and height provided by Euphorbia, Mahonia and Bamboo. The bold colours of Phormium, Crocosima and Salvia bring vibrancy, all underpinned by a forest-floor carpet of Asplenium, Heuchera and Hosta. Welcome to the Jungle.

The Elements

There are a number of key elements that confidently combine to create your Jungle garden.

Striking

Not for the faint hearted - think big shapes, textures, sizes and colours.

Lush

A rich palette of greens and deep reds help blur boundaries and evoke the exotic.

Abundant

Despite the drama, this theme is relaxed and plentiful in its design.

The Inspiration

Borde Hill Garden, West Sussex

The subtropical-style Round Dell at Borde Hill is lush with large-leaved plants, shape and texture. Hardy bananas luxuriate alongside giant rhubarb, and dense thickets of bamboo add to the exotic feel.

Trewidden Garden, Cornwall

A maze of meandering paths wind through this tranquil 15-acre garden to showcase exotic and rare plants that thrive in the mild climate. Striking and artistic in equal measure.

Singapore Botanic Gardens

This UNESCO World Heritage Site demonstrates the evolution of a tropical botanic garden from a ‘Pleasure Garden’ in the English Landscape Style, to a modern and world-class botanic garden, scientific institution and place of conservation.

The Plants

Our designs are created to ensure your garden has real structure, colour and shape, for immediate impact.

It means you’ll receive plants and flowers of all shapes and sizes - from larger, “hero” items for stature and impact, all the way through to smaller “bedding” plants that help fill spaces and bring colour.

Here’s some more detail on the types of plants you can look forward to with The Jungle - delivered right to your door and ready for planting.

1. Canopy

A palm or plant with a canopy such as Fatsia or Trachycarpus provide height and cover - a centrepiece of the design

2. Shrub

Striking shrubs such as Mahonia and Nandina add structure and substance to the design, ensuring immediate shape

3. Height

Bold stature from Fargesia and Phormium bring impact to the design

4. Statement

Statement plants such as the 'stinking' Iris foetidissima, Bergenia and Crocosima create bold pops of colour within a sea of green

5. Ground

Ground plants such as Asplenium, combined with the compact Hosta 'Blue Mouse Ears' create sprawling carpets that mimic the jungle floor

6. Climber

Climbers such as Holboellia coriacea and Passiflora help create height, range and coverage against fences and walls

The Designs

Each design in this theme has been carefully curated to give you the perfect balance of statement plants, varying heights and flowering throughout the year, in both shade and sun. This is an example design for a large slim rectangle Instant Bed.

Please note that we create your design based on a wide range of plants to ensure they best suit your space, aspect and flower bed(s) size - the plants mentioned on this page are representative of the theme but there can be variations!

The Options

We have three different shapes and sizes of the The Jungle available with our Instant Beds, designed for both sunny and shady spots within in your garden.
