Steal from the French: Plan for pools of pastel colors
Monet painted soft pinks, purples and blue color tones in his famous water colors and garden scenes and the highly developed artistic sense of the average French citizen means that even home gardeners pay attention to color echoes, color groupings and color families. You can make like Monet and float some hellebore blossoms in your bird bath or as a table centerpiece (hellebore blooms closely resemble Monet’s water lilies) or take a cue from the French paint box and plant a container or garden bed in ribbons of pastel colors. Think cool, blue delphiniums, pink phlox and lavender petunias with accents of white or purple. Yes you are painting with flowers and every gardener is an artist with a trowel.

Steal from the Italians: Formal Forms
Mama Mia! You won’t see bountiful blooms in a traditional Italian garden as lack of water has taught Mediterranean gardeners to use form and symmetry to create the living masterpieces of classic garden design. In your own garden use balance and symmetry to add a more formal look to the front of a house with matching urns or container gardens. Do not try to grow the tall and narrow Italian cypress in our wet winter climate. Instead substitute the tall and skinny Ilex ‘Sky Pencil’ to create exclamation points in the landscape or to fill a classic terra cotta container with evergreen form.

Brexit could wilt huge Dutch flower trade - Capital FM Kenya
“We are preparing for all kind of disturbances along the way,” Pasma told AFP at the huge warehouse in Aalsmeer, near Amsterdam. “The worst is a hard Brexit and we are preparing for that as well.”
The Netherlands has long been famous for tulips, and flowers remain a vital part of the Dutch economy, with seven billion euros ($8 billion) a year in sales.
Britain is the third largest market for the Netherlands’ flower export business, after Germany and France, accounting for 850 million euros.
As it is now, flowers are flown in from around the world before being sent seamlessly to Britain or other parts of the European Union’s single market.
– ‘Fresh product’ –
However, the political chaos around Britain’s impending exit from the EU on March 29, 2019 has left businesses unsure about what kind of trade arrangements — if any — will follow.
Businesses across the continent have been worrying about this since Britain voted to leave in 2016, but nowhere is the problem as pertinent as in a business where only the freshest produce will do.
