Choosing plants sometimes can be a daunting and confusing task, especially if you are inexperienced or starting from scratch.

 

Generally, plants perform best when they are situated somewhere they like and in suitable conditions and this will enable and encourage them to flourish to perform to their best potential.

 

Put simply, some plants like it hot and sunny while others will excel in cool, moist and shady areas. There are other factors to consider, such as soil type, aspect, exposure and indeed the style of garden/planting you are seeking to achieve.

 

You will find our individual plant listings provide plant information such as size, position, soil, hardiness and flowering time as well as a general description.
