Clematis is the queen of climbers, scrambling up trellises, climbing over arbours and threading themselves through other plants. There are many varieties of the plant featured throughout all of the palace gardens.
As the ultimate climbers, you can buy them fully grown and add them to transform a wall in your garden and hide any eyesores. Although known for their long, flowering vines, you can contain the plant in a pot for a more polished look. Alternatively, you can add clematis to your tablescape, bringing a pop of colour and fragrant scent to any space.
Daffodils are the national flower of Wales, and thus hold a special place in the Queen's heart and can be found in all of her private gardens. Fun fact, the Queen had a daffodil created for her in 2012 called the Narcissus' Diamond Jubilee.' While you won't be able to get your hands on these bulbs, there are others, such as the Tazetta daffodils and the fragrant Pheasant's Eye daffodils, that are easy to find.
Bulbous flowers are a great addition to any garden as they make gorgeous bouquets to enjoy in vases or brighten up a yard. Daffodils have long, slender leaves and stems, so keep in mind that they can be taller than other varieties when planning and planting. You can also grow them in pots. As an indoor plant, opt for miniature varieties.
It's no secret that the Queen loves roses. They're featured throughout all six of her private gardens, including beds of 3,500 rose bushes planted in a geometric pattern at Windsor castle. According to the Royal Collection Trust, some of the roses were picked and used in table decorations at banquets. At Buckingham Palace, 60 bushes grow in each of the 25 beds, and each bed contains a different variety of rose, chosen for its fragrance, colour and disease resistance.
