The Introduction Page of the Plants Topic provides a system of how to choose your plants for your garden with the following diagram to create a suitable list of plants:-

 

plantselectionprocedure2

 

 

 

 

Click inside yellow box to link to that Page in Plants Topic for that list of plants

 

Click inside green box to link to
that
Photo Gallery Site Map Page,
then
view its Index Pages for lists of plants
or
view flower colour per month comparison pages using its links on their flower colour per month Colour Wheel, followed by clicking on thumbnail to review its added Plant Description Page.

The above Galleries contain the Index Pages listing all the plants in their respective Sub-Galleries. The Sub-Galleries - besides containing the relevant Plant Description Pages (links to each in the Site Map of each Sub-Gallery) - also compare the flower colour, foliage colour, habit/shape, fruit/seeds and in flowerbeds/landscape.

In addition to the above method of choosing plants is the following:-

  • The Flower Colour Wheel in this Gallery has collections of different types of plant with the same colour from 1 of the 53 colours of flower petal on the same page, so that could be added to the top of the above diagram like the Bee-Pollinated or Rabbit-resistant criteria to get the same, complementary or contrasting flower colour. There is a link to its Description Page by clicking:-
    • Botanical Plant Name,
    • or clicking Flowering Months to compare the same flower colour in each month of all in that same type of plant, then clicking the thumbnail to add the Description Page. Each Text Description below each of the Thumbnails in those Comparison Pages gives you the:-
      • soil type it prefers,
      • plant name,
      • sun aspect,
      • soil moisture in the background colour and
      • height of the plant in the border colour of that plant.
  • For Hay Fever sufferers, it is better to have bee-pollinated plants than wind-pollinated plants, since the pollen spread by that wind is what causes their suffering. The plants in the Bee-Pollinated Bloom Gallery are bee-pollinated and they should be used in preference to grasses etc when using the selection procedure above - the Bee-Pollinated Page in Plants can also be used. The 264 bee-pollinated plants in the Bee-Pollinated Index pages are in addition to the bee-pollinated plants shown as thumbnails in the comparison pages of the 12 Flower Colours per month FROM its Colour Wheel of the Bee-Pollinated Bloom Gallery.
  • The All Flowers per Month Gallery complements the Flower Colour Wheel gallery by having the flower photo in each month of one of the following petal colours that that plant flowers; then a link to its Description Page by clicking on that Thumbnail:-
    • Blue
    • Brown
    • Cream
    • Green
    • Mauve
    • Orange
    • Pink
    • Purple
    • Red
    • Unusual and Multi-Coloured - multi-coloured in each flower and/or different flower colours
    • White
    • Yellow.
    • Each Text Description below each of the Thumbnails in those Comparison Pages gives you the:-
      • soil type it prefers,
      • plant name,
      • sun aspect,
      • soil moisture in the background colour,
      • plant type,
      • months of flowering and
      • height of the plant in the border colour of that plant.
  • The All Foliage Gallery has collections of different types of plant with the same colour from the 212 colours of mature foliage on the same page to produce the same, complementary or contrasting mature foliage colour lists. Each Text Description below each of the Thumbnails in those Comparison Pages gives you the:-
    • soil type it prefers,
    • plant name,
    • sun aspect,
    • soil moisture in the background colour,
    • plant type,
    • months of flowering and
    • height of the plant in the border colour of that plant.
  • The All Spring Foliage, All Summer Foliage, All Autumn Foliage and All Winter Foliage has collections of different types of plant with the same colour in that season from the 212 colours of foliage on the same page where that foliage is a different colour in more than 1 season. The same colours as in the All Foliage Gallery are used in these Galleries. This can produce the same, complementary or contrasting foliage colour in each season lists or juvenile growth season followed by mature season followed by dying to dead annual foliage season lists. Each Text Description below each of the Thumbnails in those Comparison Pages gives you the:-
    • soil type it prefers,
    • plant name,
    • sun aspect,
    • soil moisture in the background colour,
    • plant type,
    • months of flowering and
    • height of the plant in the border colour of that plant.
  • The Herbaceous Perennial Flower Shape Gallery sorts herbaceous perennial thumbnail pictures into:-
    • Number of Flower Petals,
    • Flower Simple Shape of a flower,
    • Flower Elaborated Shape of a flower,
    • Flower Elaborated Shape of a composite of flowers and
    • Flower Natural Arrangement Pages
      using the system from The Daily Telegraph Best Flowers to Grow and Cut by David Joyce (ISBN 0 7112 2366 1), which groups plants according to defined characteristics of flower simple shape, elaborated shape, flower details and flower textures.
  • The Rock Plant Flowers has plants suitable for a small rock garden with the same colour from 1 of the 53 colours of flower petal on the same page. The same colours as in the Flower Colour Wheel are used here. Each of the hundreds of Text Descriptions in the Index Pages gives you the:-
    • soil mixture it prefers,
    • plant name,
    • sun aspect position and protection,
    • soil moisture,
    • plant type,
    • flower colour and months of flowering,
    • height and width of the plant and
    • propagation details.
  • I have taken photos of 22 Rock Garden Plants suitable for a small rock garden from the Alpine House in RHS garden at Wisley during 2013, which may not be described in the Rock Plant Flowers Gallery. Each of these plants has their own page in Rock Plant Photos Gallery and will include other plants as I take their photos in 2014.

If you know the name of the plant you wish to see, you can ask Google and get information; otherwise for the public this website may help you choose your plants using foliage, shape and seed/fruit as well as flower photos before you buy them mailorder directly from the nursery / seed company that has not donated the use of their photos!

With free advertising of their plants, I am asking for photos from the public / nurseries / seed companies / suppliers in the UK from August 2009 to July 2015, or any other country in the European Union, who would supply plants / seeds mailorder direct to the public in the UK and/or the rest of the world. This also applies to American nurseries for America, Chinese Nurseries for China, etc since the plants from most other countries in the world can also be grown in the UK as well as their own country; providing the appropriate growing conditions are stated.

Plant Care

This is a photo of a Ryegrass plant, that was growing in Type I MOT Roadstone on flat ground in a private garden. You will note that it has a great deal of fibrous root - apparently in American Baseball Stadiums each grass plant has over 100 miles of root.

grassroot2a

.

That root in cooperation with worms, bacteria etc takes in food, which is brought down from the surface by water (usually rain, but can be by irrigation) either in tunnels created by the worms, moles, etc or when the ground cracks open in the summer when the clay soil dries up and shrinks - clay soil can absorb 40% of its own volume before it turns from a solid to a liquid. That root also breathes in oxygen then expels carbon dioxide (Click on Carbon Cycle) and nitrogen (Click on Nitrogen Cycle) ALL THE TIME.

If you buy Sharp-Washed-Sand from a Builder's Merchant and put that into a clean pot round a plant, then using NPK fertilisers the roots of that plant can absorb that food dissolved in water. Once you stop supplying that water and food, that plant will die (it is like saying that for you to survive, that you need a lb of glucose each day, so I sit you down outside and put 365 lbs of glucose round your feet. It rains and within 6 weeks that glucose has either been eaten by you or dissolved in the rain and washed down into the ground below your feet. Then you complain to me that you are hungry).

To make that Sharp-Washed-Sand into soil, you need dead plant material, shit from animals or dead animals, bacteria, worms that can be eaten by the animal, bacteria and worms to bind those sand particles together with clay and organic matter (Click on Soil Structure). That soil can then hold onto the some of the rain (Click on How does Water act in the Soil) with food for the animal/plant in it, before the excess rain drains through below the top soil to the sub-soil and the food in it is then lost to the plants above it. The easiest method of supplying the dead plant material is to collect your potato peelings, tea bags, coffee grounds in a bucket under the sink before putting them on the ground surface round a plant. Then, mow the lawn and put 1cm or 0.5 inch depth of grass mowings on top to complete the organic mulch, provide water from the grass and nitrogen from it to compost the peelings below. The worms having made tunnels in the soil may also eat the peelings. When it rains the water can absorb nutrients from that mulch and take it down using those tunnels. WHEN THOSE TUNNELS ARE FULL OF WATER AND A CLOD-HOPPING HUMAN WALKS ON IT, THEN IT COLLAPSES AND NO LONGER FUNCTIONS. If it rains heavily, allow the ground to recover for a couple of days before walking on it.

You can then see that a Sandy Soil is much easier for the roots of a plant to get into, but when it rains it dries up quickly and then the food in it gets washed through it very quickly (Click on How are Chemicals stored and released from Soil?). It is also easier for the gases to get in and out.

A clay soil is more difficult for plants, since when it rains the tunnels fill up with water and thus could drown the roots. Put sand round its roots up to the surface of the soil and this will combine with the clay to stop the roots from being drowned or without Nitrogen and Carbon gas exchange. If your lawn is soggy when it rains, then cut the lawn short when it is dry and apply 25Kg of sand over a 5 metre x 5 metre area once a month for 3 months during May-September and it will change the soil structure to lessen that.

A mixture of Clay and Soil is best (Click on Soil Formation - What is Soil Texture?).

 

I saw a yew tree that had been planted in a churchyard in 2000 as a 2 foot high tree. In 2009 it had reached 7 feet high and 3 feet across. Why had it not grown?

It was planted on a 30 degree slope in clay/sand soil with grass growing round its base. It had the following 3 reasons for failure to grow:-

  • When it rained, the water would either be taken up by the roots of the grass (Click on the roots of just 1 plant in the photo above) or run off down the slope.
  • The grass would take all the nutrients out the top soil leaving none to be washed down to the roots of the yew tree.
  • The grass would be using all the oxygen that came down the tunnels, leaving none for the yew tree

So, I carefully removed the grass and its roots from around its base out to the tips of the tree branches and mulched that bare ground with shrub prunings / grass mowings to a 4 inch depth. A year later it was growing quite well with new leaves and an increase of density of branches.

In Maderia I saw a mature olive tree - which had been transplanted from the nursery to a roof garden - a year after it was planted. It was on a mound with brazilian grass growing round its base. It was dying from dehydration even though it was irrigated every other day - the grass was growing well.

An organic mulch about 4 inches deep on weeded soil makes garden maintenance very easy. Once a week you walk round the garden and using a swoe (a hoe has 2 arms to the horizontal blade, a swoe only has 1 so that you can stand on the lawn and be able to hoe behind the plant in front of you) hoe through the weed root in the top of the mulch and remove the uprooted weed. I find that Spent Mushroom Compost is light, easy to lay, easy to hoe and lasts a relatively long time. You may lose about 50% each year. If you do not apply any mulch and you do have groundcover plants covering all the soil, then you will enjoy permanent weeding chores like the painters on the Forth Bridge last century - you come to the other side and have to start again immediately. When you prune your shrubs/trees/hedges then put the prunings on your uncut lawn. When you deadhead your bulbs or remove perennials, shake off the earth from the roots and place on the uncut lawn. Using a rotary mower cut your lawn and it will cut the grass and your prunings/perennials into small bits which you then mulch your flower beds/hedges with. In the autumn, set your mower to its highest cut and transfer the autumn fallen leaves onto the lawn before mowing them and mulching as before. Continue mowing once a week untill all fallen leaves have been removed.

If your garden is on a steep slope - I maintained one that had half-circle beds with lawn paths round them - the diameter of the circle was usually level and the half-circumference went down the slope. The ground had flint and chalk in it and the plants in it were usually the inverted cone shape. When it rained, the stones would be washed off onto the lawn paths and damage my mowing machine. Providing any mulch applied to those beds is covered with grass mowings, then that problem - of the stones being washed off by any rain however hard onto the paths - is stopped.

Roots of plants that you put into your garden do extend and grow, but the existing roots do not move by themselves to better places. You have to untangle them and spread them out yourself. I planted a blue cedar in my front garden and 9 years later it died. When I took it out, I found that the roots which had been going round the inside of the pot before I planted it had expanded sideways to fill the complete space between them as if they were still in the pot. There were very few roots which had grown away from this rootball and so the plant died due to dehydration, lack of food and lack of gas exchange in the ground.

A minor point that people forget is that you only live because you can breath oxygen, and plants provide it. So please look after the plant so that they have food, water and air (best soil has at least 30% air in it) on a regular basis, just like you do for your children.

when I do not have my own or ones from mail-order nursery photos , then from March 2016, if you want to start from the uppermost design levels through to your choice of cultivated and wildflower plants to change your Plant Selection Process then use the following galleries:-

  • Create and input all plants known by Amateur Gardening inserted into their Sanders' Encyclopaedia from their edition published in 1960 (originally published by them in 1895) into these
    • Stage 1 - Garden Style Index Gallery,
      then
    • Stage 2 - Infill Plants Index Gallery being the only gallery from these 7 with photos (from Wikimedia Commons) ,
      then

There are 720 roses in the Rose Galleries; many of which have the above series of pictures in their respective Rose Description Page.

So one might avoid the disappointment that the 2 elephants had when their trunks were entwined instead of them each carrying their trunk using their own trunk, and your disappointment of buying a rose to discover that the colour you bought it for is only the case when it has its juvenile flowers; if you look at all the photos of the roses in the respective Rose Description Page!!!!
