Tough shrub for shady, windy spot

Posted: 10/01/2014 at 19:47

I've got skimmia in a shady, cold and quite exposed spot- it does very well, with lovely flowers and berries.

My new addition sarcococca is also settling in well to the same north side of my small garden- I'm aware it may not have as many flowers and berries aif one in a less shady spot though.

Thanks LG 

I couldn't get any closer because off Keep off Grass signs and rubbish camera phone!

No leaves I could see remaining, no. May have to wait tip Spring or when no one's watching and climb over fence...

christmas cactus wont flower

Posted: 19/12/2013 at 16:06

Could be. They need lots of light but preferably not direct sun. They also need a feed about this time as they're using a lot of energy flowering. But careful not to overwater, as this can also stress them out. Very little water in general and let compost almost dry out in between waterings. never let it stand in water. It also won't like being near a radiator. Hope this helps!
