I THINK I have a Peace Lily - how on Earth do I make it happy?

Posted: 22/10/2012 at 06:16

Hello Martin - your plant is a Peace Lily - the foliage looks lovely and healthy The only thing I am worried about is the size of the pot you have put it in - you say it was in a small pot before. I would have just gone up one size at a time.Be careful with the watering over winter but it will enjoy being misted over occasionally- it is a good plant to have in an office as it is supposed to absorb nasties from the air

If they are small plants I would overwinter them in the greehouse and plant them out in spring -perhaps pot them on a size if there are good roots

Shrub or tree? what will determine???

Posted: 19/10/2012 at 13:40

I would say if it is a single stem it will grow into a tree and if it has a few stems it will grow into a shrub

In my garden I have an Amelanchier tree and also an Amelanchier shrub

Choose whichever suits the purpose for your garden
