Small tree for front garden

Posted: 19/03/2013 at 20:02

I am glad you are going to turf your front garden ,so many gardens are dull with gravel or brick.I have seen here in a small front garden a grass lawn with a circle bed with a variegated holly with berries and small flower borders surrounding .It looks lovely and refreshing,the holly is cut in a ball shape.

these plants like cold cool room ,they have to have water each day as well as misting,on the whole they hate central heating and don't over water either.little and often.not an ideal plant for indoors,that's why they flower outside in winter.

Fear of messing with old roses

hi,I have roses which my mum had in her garden over 20years ago.The one you have in the photo I have and have just recently taken more cuttings (which are doing well)and others which I have taken cuttings and still growing on.The original ones after a good many years became ragged so I took cuttings to carry on the line and I have got plants and roses my mother had and given also.Its rather nice to have a living memory of her still growing on.

The mould is where it has been over watered in a cold damp place and you will need to remove it and let the plant dry out and then plant but it might have got a hold and started to rot the plant.

edible non poisenous plants/bushes

you need to get a good herb book  and plant book to help you Identify plants correctly ,i have many books and they are very valuable source of information.Its important with children that you teach them about the uses of plants and what can be poisonous but also as in a school or nursery environment it must be plants that are safe,don't just rely on peoples word.good luck and i am glad you are teaching this.
