Yes they like the same condition but arabis is usually white flowers and aubretia  is usually bluey violet in flower.

What's Happening to My Ficus?!

Posted: 30/01/2018 at 11:26

Oh dear it does look sad, 

dont know where you live but certainly not in the UK, I would say your ficus has dried out and the soil it’s in doesn’t look ideal either.

Although it doesn’t like much water I would think a plant the size yours appears to be would want more than a spray mist,also it prefers free draining soil. Not sure if it will survive as its classed as a evergreen and it’s dropped all it’s leaves so cannot synthesis.

If you have to leave your plants for a week or more it’s a good idea to put them in the shade so they have more chance of not suffering drought conditions.

nothing to do with gardening but I wanted to share my joy,

at last I’m getting a new knee today, just off to hospital.

oh the joy in knowing I should be able to resume my gardening this summer.

sorry it’s not garden related but anyone who has been in my position I know will understand.

I subscribe to the paper version there’s nothing quite like the plop on the doormat when the postman brings the new copy.

Just like Be Witched I like the free seeds, 2for 1 garden entry, and the lovely calender.

I cut up used ice cream containers and write on them with a sharpie, I’m known as a bit of a Scrooge but I like to recycle things if possible.
