hi there,

trying to find a plant I saw over at Citta Design .. had icy grey green leaves with a slight pink tinge and the leaf had a slightly variegated edge. Citta says it is a kalanchoe but the ones in store have a definite dark green leaf. Could it be a different variety of kalanchoe or do they only have a dark leaf … ?
please help!

Hi there, we have an area of garden that has some large trees/shrubs such as camellia and rhododendrons. Along with a couple of other large evergreen trees these ensure that the majority of the garden is in shade or at the very best filtered light all year round. We have some hydrangeas which grow very well in summer but a lot of the area is unplanted due to the shade. We have placed some large planter pots in the area but these remain unplanted at present. The large trees/shrubs are trimmed and thinned during the year however we really don’t want to remove any of them. I would appreciate some ideas for medium and small planting, ground cover and what to put into the pots.

Hi! We are looking for a ground hugging, ground cover which will grow well in full shade under a large pine tree, do you have anything suitable? We would prefer a native and would be nice to have something that flowers but it would need to be allergy friendly 🙂 Ta

We have a new garden and when digging it over recently I discovered many clumps of bulbs. They were beginning to shoot and just about to break through the soil. How Can I tell whether they are daffodills or Dutch Iris?

Hi,
Do any of your branches stock universal brackets for hanging troughs etc? I believe they come from Willow Avenue but I can’t order them privately.
Cheers

Hi . I have a large sunroom – Glass all round n roof so can imagine it gets hot !!! I want to decorate it with pots n plans and crystals and turn it into a place to relax .
Can you please recommend me the best indoor plants that like a lot of Sunlight – HOT !!and are appealing to look at . I like the idea of big plants that make a statement … ferns ..etc .
Pots can’t be hung . Ground only in corners under windows ….

Thanks …

I’ve heard that sheep manure is good for the garden. Personally, the smell is too much for me, but I wonder if there’s something similar you can recommend?
