Succulents advise

I'm in the Netherlands. The weather is similar to the south east of the uk. The sand is sharpish. It certainly doesn't have any problems growing weeds or grass.

Hi guys,

im planning on converting my old children's sandpit into a a succulent/cacti garden. It currently is full of nothing but sand. So how much soil should I mix in? Can our wet climate overwater them? And can a bad winter kill them off?

cheers

Cactus or.....,....

Well I either have to bring them in during winter or go for something else. What about succulents?

Hi guys,

So, I have a window box in a shaded area that I want to put some plants in that don't need much attention and will do something interesting all year round. Do you think I could get away with a cactus or two? Or should I be looking at something else?

cheers

Hi guys,

So, I have a lot of shady areas under trees in my driveway and I want to plant a variety of plants that will look good throughout the year and help keep the weeds at bay.

My soil has a lot of clay.

Any suggestions?

Cheers

Plant pot problem

Thanks guys.

I think I might have a go at making a wooden planter. I've always fancied giving it a go.

Hi guys,

I want to put a plant pot around the base of a wooden pole I have in the garden but I can't take the pole out first. So I need either a pot that splits so I can wrap it around or a design of, possibly, a wooden one I can make. Any ideas?

 

Cheers

That's great guys thank you. I'm going to thin them out a bit and maybe put them under some trees in the drive way.
