Based in the South of England, and established for over 10 years, Florus offer a highly personal and professional garden design service. Our expertise and experience enables us to assist with all aspects of a project, from the initial planning stages to construction and final planting. All projects receive the same level of commitment, large or small, commercial or residential.

At Florus, we recognise that each client has a particular vision of their ideal garden. So, by working closely with our clients throughout, we ensure that when the finished design is presented, it will contain all the elements required to achieve the true potential of each garden whilst reflecting individual taste and lifestyle.


Our year so far has been extremely busy, with our first garden build starting in Wimborne on the 4th January, we haven’t stopped since!

Currently we are working on projects large and small in Queens Park, Sandbanks, Parkstone, Lyme Regis, Broadstone and Weymouth.

It is really exciting for us to have such a diversity of projects to work on, from the design stage through to overseeing the builds and finally the planting, which we still carry out ourselves.

We have been working for some time now on plans for a roof garden for the ‘ Organix’ company in the centre of Bournemouth. Plans have now all been agreed and work is due to begin

Mid July. It is a great company and we are really looking forward to transforming the garden for the staff to enjoy.


Salvia nemorosa ‘Caradonna’


This striking perennial has deep indigo-violet flower spikes which create a vivid haze of colour from June until the first frosts in October. The flowers are a magnet for attracting bees and butterflies.

It likes plenty of sun and free draining soil and once established it is drought tolerant. Remove flower spikes once they fade to encourage further flowering.

Overcrowded clumps can be divided in spring. Like it’s culinary cousin Sage, it’s grey green leaves are both attractive and fragrant – an all-round excellent plant!
