Summer bulbs enhance a friendly atmosphere in the garden
This year, 'Human Touch' is one of the three garden trends (together with 'Recentered Stage' and 'Balanced Biotope'). Central to this trend is an increasing need for kindness and humanity. Find out how you can meet this need with summer bulbs.
We’d like to stop the clock to catch our breath. Even for just a moment to get out of the fast lane and unwind. Instead, we look for solutions in a simpler life, with products that are sweet, nice and kind (to the world). Summer bulbs fulfil this role with gusto thanks to the considerable effect they have on the friendly atmosphere in the garden.
The search for meaning
Rapid technological developments and climate change can feel threatening. As a result, there is a great need for humanity, trust and recognition. We try to find meaning and look for products that match this feeling. Summer bulbs in rounded borders or pots create a warm, organic garden atmosphere that makes you feel welcome.
The 'Human Touch' trend alternates warm earth and skin tones with lilac and ochre-yellow in the garden and on the terrace. Summer bulbs like dahlias, callas, gladioli (Gladiolus), freesias and lilies (Lilium) enhance the friendly atmosphere with their richly flowering, soft and round flowers. Allowing them to bloom in an undulating pattern, in both light and dark colours, creates harmony.
