Courtenay Floral Displays

The 2019 theme for the annual displays in Courtenay was “Hot and Fiery", and was designed in-house by the Parks Horticulture team. Click the images below to view the plants in more detail.

Tips for designing floral displays in your own garden:

  • Be inspired by a theme, with perhaps three or four colours
  • Stagger plants by height; tallest in the back, then medium, and ground cover in the front. This helps air reach all the plants, and ensures there is less competition for sunlight. Plus, you get to visually enjoy each plant.
