Plants for those awkward situations

No matter where you garden there will always be plants for your situation and soil type (it may not seem so after you have seen your 4 or 5th type of your favourite plant curl its toes up and die).

Sometimes it takes a little research and patience to work out what is going on, but rest assured, it is worth the effort.   Because once you have worked out the type of plants that you are looking for the battle is won (well almost - you've still got to buy them, plant them and nuture them.  But hey, who said gardening was easy?).

Below we have listed some of the plants that we know about (and in some cases stock at the nursery) for the respective situations.   Obviously this is by no means a comprehensive list.   If you know of any that are not here, by all means email us and we will update the list accordingly.
