Choosing Container Plants

Choosing Container Plants

Choosing Container Plants – The most important thing to consider when growing any plant in a container is the direction of the sun. In the northern hemisphere, if a patio faces south, it is sheltered, and the general climate is hot enough, heat-loving plants can be grown. If it faces north then you should concentrate on those plants that will flourish in a degree of shade.

Landscaping With Edible Plants

Landscaping With Edible Plants

Landscaping With Edible Plants – The edible garden is one of the hottest landscaping trends today. Vegetable gardens, herb gardens, fruit trees, berry bushes – all are items that a landscaping company can use to transform a garden into a place where kids don’t just go to play, they go to eat. Parents benefit too; they can save on grocery bills by making dinner from ingredients grown in their garden.

Perfect spots for edible plants. Most yards contain a mixture of sunny spots and shady spots. Few edible plants will grow in the shade, but sunny areas can prove very useful.

Plants For Particular Aspects

Plants For Particular Aspects

Plants For Particular Aspects – A north-facing wall in total shade will be colder than other parts of the garden. Even plants that tolerate these conditions will grow more slowly than they would in other areas. ln the main, plants grown for their foliage are better on north-facing walls than those  grown for their flowers.

There are a few flowering plants  suitable for such walls. They include the evergreen climbing hydrangea (Hydrangea petiolaris), which will climb a large wall without help and produce lace-cap  hydrangea flowers that turn a pretty tan color as they  fade and last into winter.
