Plants | Plants in the Garden

The term 'Plants' covers a huge range of subjects as far as gardening is concerned. All plants have a few things in common. They need to be planted in the right place, need feeding and watering, and need our help when sick!

Many types of plants have their own section within this website. Roses, herbs, grasses, perennials, indoor plants, shrubs and aquatic plants for starters!

Whilst there are these specialists section about certain types of plants, we feel that there is a need for this section that simply crosses the boundaries of specialism in order to bring you the easiest way to find what you are looking for by way of plants generally.

For instance, when describing Climbing Plants, we would need to point you to at least two different sections - Shrubs and Perennials.

Ground cover plants are to be found in a number of different sections - shrubs, grasses, perennials, alpines and ferns - to name a few.
