With Winter in mind:

Two very hard winters have left many of us wondering if we should re-evalaute  the of list of Hardy Plants we can grow locally in our gardens.

The beautiful pink  Citus in my garden died last winter.

With this in mind, is it time to think about the plants we recommend for planting schemes?

So far I have contacted the RHS.

Their response is that it might be useful to take note of those plants that have not survived.

Caution could then be exercised in using them again.

New plants with “Enharnsed hardiness” could help us here.

Certainly there will be a difference in what can survive in the more equable South to that experienced

here in the Midlands.

This goes some way to answer the problems.

However, perhaps more information will come my way to help me with my planting schemes next Spring!
