Seedlings have many functions in a garden. They are most commonly used to add splashes of colour to garden beds and sometimes as a source of cut flowers. Colour can help to lead the eye to a feature that you want to accentuate. Smaller growing seedlings can be used to edge beds. Seedlings look especially good when planted into pots, hanging baskets or window boxes. Using different colours can create different moods. For example, a garden can be made to look cooler by using white or blue colours. A warmer look can be achieved using reds and yellow colours.
