The Horticulture Sector Trends for 2022 have been announced by the Flower Council Holland, revealing what key flowers, houseplants and outdoor plants we will be tapping into next year.
Whether you’re on the hunt for some gardening advice or want to grow beautiful blooms like a pro, let these ideas inspire your green-fingered planning.
"We are delighted to share the latest trends for flowers, houseplants and outdoor plants again this year," Flower Council Holland say. "For 2022 we have developed four style trends that are relevant for the floriculture sector."
It’s been a long year, so we have good reason to rejoice when thinking of the horticultural trends to embrace in 2022. Take a look at what we’ll be digging our hands into… 1. Fresh start
Sustainability, climate solutions, decluttering and biodegradable products are right at the heart of this trend. When it comes to our outdoor spaces, Fresh Start is all about embracing white accessories , white flowering plants , fresh pops of colour and bio-based materials that put the planet first.
The trend also trickles into our indoor spaces, with forecasters predicting a surge in foliage and air-purifying plants that create a healthy surrounding. Buying houseplants might have turned into the next pandemic hobby, but there’s no sign of that slowing down in 2022.
"After the pandemic it feels like we’re getting a second chance," the trend report says. "Because many people are now working from home, there is more emphasis on the furnishing of our home and outdoor spaces."

Tapping into a palette of vibrant colour, the Bright and Breezy trend is all about colourful borders , coloured parasols , and cheerful pick-your-own-flower gardens as a new take on the kitchen garden. If you’re dreaming about relaxing in warmer climes, you’ll be pleased to know that the trend is all about creating that holiday feeling in your own garden.
When it come to patterns and materials, 2022 will see a surge in ceramics, coloured glass, practical plastics, textiles, raffia and granite compositions. It’s all about materials that can be natural, artisan and practical at the same time.
"The colour chart for Bright and Breezy consists of cheerful and powerful pastel tones such as pink, blue, mint green and pale orange, alternated with more vivid accents," the trend report adds. "Coral red plays a fresh and softening role, and is important for both flowers and plants. White plays a less significant role in this colour chart." 3. Traditional Sentiment
For many of us, our gardens are a pocket of peace and quiet – a place we find refuge in. The Traditional Sentiment trend is all about retro and vintage flowering plants, climbing roses , low-growing fruit trees , plus bouquets arranged with great attention to detail. Whether you are blessed with a kitchen garden or not, it’s about keeping things traditional.
