Wow, your website is great! I will be looking plants up when my mind goes blank and I get stuck for what to put where?!
Thanks for all the input, maybe I could link to you from my website, I am sure my customers will want to use your website!
Hi Neil,This is fabulous thank you! I've been looking for something like this for my design students, mostly homeowners rather than professionals.Perfect timing as I'm doing a new course on how to put plants together in great combinations, so I will link to this in the course.Will this always be a free service or will you do a paid version later on? If so I'd love to promote it to my students!
I've made a free, interactive plant selector and pruning guide website www.rightplants4me.co.uk which I hope you will find useful.
You can search for plants by any combination of Latin / common name, colour, month, height, soil type and aspect. The best plants to suit your requirements are displayed. Click on the thumbnails opens up the full plant description and care advice.
I've also added some time-lapses to show how the plants grow and their fascinating design. For and examples see Oak or allium rosenbachianum
The site is still work in progress and we're adding plants daily plus adding more functions.
If you want plants adding to the list please contact email@example.com and I'll see what we can do.
If you notice any glaring mistakes please let me know and I'll correct them immediately.
Can you help with creative ideas?
Trying to add a list of what patterns are possible to make with Any shape raised bed/ and garden edgings that I supply for a new Facebook page.
So far we have:''heart shape'', letters , stars and moon, shapes( circle...) ''stepping stones in shapes filled with aggregate/ grass/ plants'', waves, ... I feel that I do not know much about real patterns ideas that can work.
having cd info and images and free samples of all new edgings that we have now ( 3 colours, depth, and 3 strength) to send if you wish.
thanks Linda ,
I have used this product on initial planting in the past ,
& we will use it this time , yet once planted I will have little imput to miniter anything . So I had wanted to avoid as much as possible `tempting` the rabbits.
I will be leaving this product with client for her maintenance gardeners , yet I am not sure they are so aware & poss only see damage once something has more than nibbles.
Sarah & I have decided to put our lists / others lists together & post here on plants selection ...any reccommendations will be kindly noted too.
Re: grazers : when I researched this product a number of yrs ago , discovered it is natural ( actually is usesd by farmers on crops !
When we applied it diluted as said ( the guys on site did this ) , I happened to brush past the plants when dry & planted & I got a reaction to it .......So for others it can be an irritant to humans / children when diluted & dry . So be careful.
many thanks Linda
Thankyou Sarah for the call today
Laara, I have had quite good success with 'Grazers' spray on rabbit repellent; it seems to stop the investigative nibbles when the plants first go into the garden, though you do need to reapply a few times
i will call you today .
I have a list of plants I am sure of....then I have a list of not so sure.
great on the phlomis...on some lists , yet Piet Oudolf ommits it of his tentative list.
cannot use euphorbia...lots of children in this garden ...all very adventurous too !
I know there are various lists out there , many saying different things just to confuse , Like rabbits do eat/shred lavander & salvia ...then these are on rabbit `RESISTANT` lists. Also Phlomis is on & off lists.
Any one know on these specific plants !
I know Rabbits are fickle , and like to taste having forgotten what something tasted like last season !
Also Viburnum Davidii , Other viburnum are generally not eaten by them Ie: tinus, opulus ....yet do not know on davidii
I have trauled every where for lists & compared , also have some experience on a number of sites , yet would appreciate anyones experience also
a few stories on clump forming ..........certainly not clump forming if they are very happy in situ .........personnally I would never plant bamboo straight into a garden, any bamboo, even if said to be clump forming as they are not always well behaved ..& if they decide to run through other planting one will not beable to eradicate without losing other plants due to root entanglement.
stainless steel planters with a concrete foundation is pretty good to contain bamboo , we generally build an internal marine ply , then frame this with stainless. to avoid any bowing in the steel at a later date , even when using a good gauge/thickness stainless.
