And a Chesterfield area garden centre has come up some key themes for residents planning to upgrade their urban oasis.

Experts at Dobbies Garden Centres, which has a branch at Barlborough, have revealed the key outdoor living themes this spring – and the trends which have inspired them.

Themes include country kitchen gardens, warmth and light, sustainability, and colour, shaped by hopes for alfresco dining, increased wellbeing awareness and the idea of your garden as an extra ‘room’.

Lynsey Abbott, Dobbies outdoor living buyer, said: “Our vision for spring-summer 2021 is all about getting the most from our outdoor spaces, embracing spending time in the garden and creating a practical and stylish space we can enjoy throughout the season.

“We know one size doesn’t fit all, so we have worked hard to ensure there is something for gardens in every shape and size, from contemporary, laid-back functional dining sets that would look just as good inside as outside your home, to bold bright accessories to add a touch of tropical.

“Whether it’s for dining alfresco, hosting weekend barbecues or spending evenings round the firepit, our gardens are a space for fun, relaxation and enjoyment.”
