RHS Plant Selector
Having problems deciding which plants and flowers to grow in the Allertons?
Do you go around garden centres and nurseries, wondering what to choose for that cleared flower bed or window box? Do you buy, plant them, then sit back only to see them wilt and die. Do you have a tricky spot you cannot fill; well help is at hand...
The Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) now has an on-line plant selector - follow the selection boxes for flower colour, foliage colour, soil type, location, sun or shade, exposed or sheltered, plant types and habitats, etc; then hit the search button and hey presto! - a plant selection.
There are no guarantees as the influence of 'green fingers', watering and climate quirks, if not the dreaded 'climate change', are still a significant factor but it may save you time and money at the garden centre.
