Whether you are wanting to completely revamp your garden, or just add a few extra plants, knowledge is power. Knowing about the various plant types out there and how they complement one another is a key part of the gardening process. Whether you are a novice or a keen gardener, choosing the right plants that will look and grow best in your own particular garden is vital.
Planting the Seeds of Success
Before rushing out and buying any old plant to fill the spot, firstly look carefully at the situation in which you plan to plant. Will it be in full sun or shade, exposed to prevailing winds or in a sheltered spot? Does the area get dry or damp? Always choose a plant that suits the environment it is to grow in and carefully look after it, then watch it flourish in and around your home and garden!
