Ground cover plants are extremely useful for dealing with difficult areas in the garden. Ground cover planting works by making a dense covering over the soil, which prevents the soil from washing away and weeds from establishing. It’s important to space these plants closely enough when you plant them so they grow together quickly and form an impenetrable barrier to weeds. Once they are established, they’re virtually maintenance-free. These bright, easy plants will give you months of colour and lots of bee-friendly flowers. Don’t forget to check out our other ground cover plants page under ‘Trees & Shrubs’ when making your selection.
