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

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

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?



Suggestions please

As usual you guys have come up trumps. For an amateur gardener this forum is a wonderful resource. Thank you all.

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?



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?

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.

Yes it does. I remember that last year when we first moved in. That's great thank you. Is there anything I should know? It seems to look after itself and the bees love it.
