In Gardeners World episode 8 2019: with warmer weather on the horizon, Monty makes a start on getting some tender veg underway, recommends plants which thrive with very little water and gives tips on the spring maintenance of houseplants.



 

 

With the increasing popularity of houseplants, Nick Bailey spends the day at Kew exploring their cacti and succulent collection to find out more about how we should take care of them, Adam Frost is in Lincolnshire helping a family transform their front garden into a more interesting and usable space, and Arit Anderson travels to Faversham in Kent, to find out how the town has used innovative ideas to reduce their plastic use. And we visit a nursery in West Sussex to get expert advice on how to get the best results from growing citrus in pots.

Staking perennials

Perennials in borders often put on strong lush growth that makes them vulnerable to collapse, especially after heavy rain or strong winds. Staking them early in the season will help avoid disaster. In particular; tall plants and hybrids with large flowers require additional support.

Plant supports should be ideally inserted in spring, before plants have made too much growth. The plants will then grow through the support and hide it from view. Later staking is difficult as plant growth is more advanced and can easily be damaged. It may be necessary to continue tying the stems or raise the level of the used supports as the plant grows.

Drought-resistant plants

As climate change presents us with the challenge of gardening with less water, choosing plants to suit our growing conditions becomes paramount.

Cacti & succulents

This plant group is extremely vast and diverse, from the very small and intricate to the striking and architectural. There is a cactus or succulent to suit everyone, whether young or old.
