Low growing plants needed

Posted: 10/07/2014 at 21:35

I need a low growing plant to be located by the side of our pond. The planting area isn't damp as it sits above the water level. I want a plant with roots that help hold the soil together and spread well. A hardy perennial would be preferable.

We planted out a nectarine that germinated from a stone. Decided to plant it out and has grown brilliantly. Suffered a bit from leaf curl but a twice yearly treatment of Bordeaux mixture helped out with that problem

Trillium, I live close to Brinvale farm itself. A lot of the stock they use they grow themselves which is great environmentally as it reduces transport.

Hi All,

I need a fair amount of topsoil or compost to add to the flowers beds within our garden. Do any of you know of a good supplier within the Nottingamshire area?

Thanks

Martin

We have at least one frog and one toad in the garde. Both were under a plastic composter base the other day. I am currently considering contacting Channel 5 to see if they would be interested in a new idea i have called Amphibian wars. Well it has to be better than Britain clearly doesn't have talent or Big brother!
