Trend watch: Mediterranean made easy for 2024

The Mediterranean garden trend is hot for 2024, with predictions from the Behaviours Agency and garden experts that outdoor spaces will take inspiration from the warmer climes of Greece, Spain and Italy.

With Mediterranean inspired gardens leaning towards neutral colours, stone textures and lots of greenery, discover the pots customers will be looking for and how you can help them get the look.

These examples come from the RHS website.

Stone-like pots

Beton pots from the Apta Lightweight range are idea for introducing natural stone colour and texture without the considerable weight of real stone.

The Beton range is designed to look like concrete, but crafted in lightweight recyclable material ideal for indoors and out.

Available in black, grey and sand each pot is UV and frost resistant, comes with a 10 year guarantee and is easier to move than real stone.

The considerably lower price point means customers are more able to mix and match across the range of complementary colours and sizes – so we recommend having them all on display together.

Natural colour palettes

Weben pots, part of the Apta Lightweight range, come in a range of natural, neutral shades that replicate the colours of real stone.

Created with a woven texture similar to popular concrete pots, Weben planters are much lighter and easy to move.

The Weben range comprises 3 distinct shapes available in natural grey, black and sand – designed to be mix and match. Thanks to the much lower price point compared to real stone, customers can regularly add to their collection and build on their Mediterranean inspired garden throughout the season.

Classic terracotta

Warm, earthy colours are key to a Mediterranean garden style and terracotta tones are ideal.

With a natural and rustic feel, Apta terracotta pots are the ideal addition to any inspiring display: direct customers to the Himalaya range for a faded effect, Old Stone for a ‘been there forever’ vibe and classic terracotta for a classic paprika tone.
