What a wonderful station garden! I live outside Glasgow. And all the train stations I pass through everyday are so drab and could be easily made to look so much better with plants.

what flower iare these?

These are beautiful! And I am usually not a fan of dahlias. Does anyone know if bees like these as I am trying to attract bees into my garden.

I am not sure of its name but it's a climber that clings to walls/fences and the leaves turn bright red in the autumn, I would actually like to grow one on the wall of my house...is it ok to grow in a pot? Thanks

Over winter non hardy fuschia

I thought my house may be too warm for them as I do not have a cool place in the house. I do have a windowless shed, could I store them there over winter?

Over winter non hardy fuschia

I am wondering if it is possible for me to overwinter my non hardy fuschias outside during winter...I do not have a greenhouse nor garage . Would it be enough for me to pot them up and place them in a sheltered place such as behind a shed ? Btw I live in Glasgow.

Laurel hedge

I planted a new laurel hedge at the front of my house, which can r a bit windy in march this year. The plants I used were cuttings that we're taken about three years ago and are abt 2 foot high and spaced 2 feet apart. Problem is some of the leaves are turning yellow and I would like to give the hedge a boost toake it grow quicker and bushier. Anyone any suggestions?

Inspiration and ideas needed

I think if u were to paint all the wood the dark colour it would look really great and modern. Especially if u had plants with some different coloured foliage.
