Did you know that an average garden in the UK has a total investment of £1.790 by the house owners?

Revealed in a recent study by Homebase, they also set a list of garden flowers that are most attractive to house-hunters and might help to sell you house!

According to the study, “Gardens are also crucial to a home’s attractiveness on the property market, with two-fifths of Britons saying they would not buy a property unless it had a decent garden.”

What’s are the other things that house hunters are looking at when buying a house? When it comes to the garden, there are clear winners:

“Househunters identified a pleasant lawn as the garden item most likely to convince them to buy a house, outstripping sheds, ponds and vegetable patches. The three garden flowers most likely to help sell a property were roses, lavender and fuchsia.”

Here is a list of the top ten plants for your garden, if you want to increase your chance of house sale!

  1. We have Jasmine. It is a very rumbustious plant that spreads like mad and takes a lot of control.

    Walls covered with clematis in full bloom would do it for me.
