Plant Associations

It is sad to reflect that in England so few gardens open to the public label their plants or label them so that the label is visible when that plant is in flower, so that visitors can identify; and then later locate and purchase that plant.

Few mail-order nurseries provide the detail as shown in my rose or heather galleries.

If you want to sell a product, it is best to display it. When I sold my Transit van, I removed its signage, cleaned it and took photos of the inside and outside before putting them onto an advert in Autotrader amongst more than 2000 other Transit vans - it was sold in 20 minutes.

If mail-order nurseries could put photos to the same complexity from start of the year to its end with the different foliage colours and stages of flowering on Wikimedia Commons, then the world could view the plant before buying it, and idiots like me would have valid material to work with.

I have been in the trade (until ill health forced my Sole Trader retirement in 2013) working in designing, constructing and maintaining private gardens for decades and since 2005 when this site was started, I have asked any nursery in the world to supply photos. R.V. Roger in Yorkshire allowed me to use his photos from his website in 2007 and when I got a camera to spend 5 days in July 2014 at my expense taking photos of his roses growing in his nursery field, whilst his staff was propagating them. I gave him a copy of those photos.

Anemones (Windflower, wood anemone is a member of the Wildflower Buttercup Family)

Supplier in UK
Supplier in USA

Many different colours

Spring blooming anemones do best in part shade. Fall bloomers thrive in full sun to part shade.

The sea anemone represents a clownfish's territory. Once established, It is rarely abandoned and clownfish will not venture far from it. The sea anemones stinging tentacles provide a safe haven for the clown when danger approaches. In return the clown fish helps the anemone by cleaning its tentacles of detritus, and possibly running off potential predators.

12-24 x
(30-40 x )

Anemones like soil that is deep and rich, with plenty of well-decayed manure, so that it holds moisture, but is also well-drained.

Bu

Tuberous-rooted or herbaceous perennials

Propagate tuberous-rooted anemones by seeds sown in prepared beds in January or in July. The best varieties should be taken up annually and offsets removed for propagation, but others are usually left undisturbed.
Best Tuberous Varieties:-

  • Anemone coronaria (poppy anemone), spring flowering, various colours
  • Anemone hortensis fulgens (Anemone hortensis, scarlet windflower), spring. (Best for naturalizing)
  • Anemone nemorosa (wood anemone is a member of the Wildflower Buttercup Family), spring, white (Use under deciduous shrubs or trees)
  • Anemone nemorosa robinsoniana, a good subject for the rock garden; sky blue
  • Anemone blanda, blue, winter flowering
  • Anemone palmata, yellow, likes peaty soil, 6 inches (15 cms), May

Herbaceous Varieties:-

  • Anemone alpina, 6 inches (15 cms), white
  • Anemone pulsatilla (Pasque Flower), purple, spring
  • Anemone sylvestris, the snowdrop-flowered anemone. This dislikes cold soils
  • Anemone hepatica, spring, flowering various colours
  • Anemone japonica, September-flowering perennial 24 inches (60 cms) in height, very useful for mixed borders. In addition to the white form, rose shades are now offered.

To make up an ideal bed for cultivation of these flowers, dig out 18 inches (45 cms) of soil. Put in a 6 inch (15 cms) layer of cow dung. Then refill the bed with good fresh loam. On this can be sown the seed, which must first be separated carefully so that it is evenly distributed. Generally the plants will flower the same season, but only the best kinds for exhibition should be retained for the following year. Never let the plants lack moisture, but do not let water become stagnant in the soil or the leaves will become distorted and swollen.
When planting, put the tubers 2-3 inches (5-7.5 cms) deep in soil similar to that of the seed bed described above, i.e.soil containing good loam, and rotted cow dung, with a quantity of sand.
Anemones will not usually respond to much forcing, but they may be potted in September, and grown in a cold frame or pit until spring, when they may be removed to the greenhouse. In this way excellent pot blooms may be obtained.

Clematis tangutica 'Gravetye'

 

Clematis in flower for every month of the year (see also Clematis Climber Plant Gallery)

Growing Clematis in Containers

Bell-like Lavender

In nature the flowering portions of this plant are exposed to Full Sun, whilst the main stem and lower parts of the plant are often shaded by other vegetation. It is therefore advisable to place the plants on the northern side of their supports.

Mar-May

120 x 60
(150 x 300)

The moist soil should be an open loamy one, containing lime or chalk, the Clematis being essentially a plant of calcareous soils. The clematis also thrives in peaty loam.

A Quick Guide to Clematis Pruning from The British Clematis Society

Cl H

Clematis alpina comes from the mountains of central and southern Europe, and it is a delightful May-flowering slender climber that can be planted on the shady side of a large rock to scramble over and drape its face. Its flowers are bell-shaped and blue, but there are also white flower-forming of equal charm.

Clematis alpina does not need pruning. It can scramble through a strong shrub or tree.

Another gem of slender growth is Clematis tangutica 'Gravetye variety, with its rich golden yellow nodding lantern-shaped flowers and silky whorled seed heads that give joy from August to October.

Taylors Clematis : Bees & Butterflies
"With the rapid decline of bees in the last few years here are a selection of clematis that we feel are especially attractive to bees and butterfly's. Bees love a varied Menu so aim to provide a mixture of colours and textures as well as flower shapes and plant heights. The 1st solitary bees emerge very early in the spring, so any of the alpina & macropetala varieties would be ideal for this period. Large mid season single flowered varieties will provide pollen for May & June. For later flowering varieties, look at the integrifolas and any 'bell shaped' flowers as these are also very effective."

Blue

Jun-Aug

24-36 (60-90)

 

 

A native plant of improved form, pure blue, about 36 inches (90 cms) high. Best autumn sown outdoors, when, if given space, a single plant will branch a yard = 36 inches = 90 cms wide. The dwarfer forms are not so good as the tall. There are purple and white varieties, but the strong, pure blue and a lighter blue are the best.
 

Cornflower is also grown for the cutflower industry in Canada for use by florists. Its edible flower can be used for culinary decoration, for example to add colour to salads. A Cornfield Annual mix with red of Poppies and Yellow of Marigold is a very attractive mix.

Cut roses are often grown in glasshouses, and in warmer countries they may also be grown under cover in order to ensure that the flowers are not damaged by weather and that pest and disease control can be carried out effectively.

Culture of Roses in Pots: Classes suitable for pot culture, Hybrid Perpetual, Hybrid Tea, Tea-scented, Polyantha with Miniature Bush and Patio Bush. Compost, 2 parts turfy loam, 2 parts rotted cow or hotbed manure, 1 part sand. Pot, October. Repot annually in August or September. Prune newly lifted and potted plants in November, shortening shoots to 3, 2 or 1 'eyes' of the base according to size; established plants of Hybrid Perpetuals and Hybrid Teas to 6, 3 and 2 'eyes'; Tea-scented, Chinese, Fairy and Polyantha kinds to 8, 6 and 4 'eyes' in November for early flowering, December or January for late flowering. Position, sheltered corner outdoors with pots protected from frost by straw, or in cold frame October to January, greenhouse January to May, sunny place outdoors afterwards. --->

Water moderately January to April, freely April to September, keep nearly dry October to January. Apply stimulants once or twice during flowering period. Syringe freely in greenhouse.

Manure for Roses: Cow or pig dung for light soils, horse manure for heavy ones. Top-dress with above directly after pruning and lightly fork in. Suitable artificial manure - superphosphate of lime (48 lbs (pounds) 16 ounces to 1 Pound) sulphate of potash, 20 lbs; sulphate of ammonia, 25 lbs; sulphate of iron, 4 lbs. Mix thoroughly together and apply at the rate of 3 ounces per square yard directly after pruning; 1 dose a year is sufficient. Liquid soot-water, cow and sheep dung also good for roses outdoors or in pots, especially applied generously after the first summer blooming is over.

Cut Flowers All The Year from The New Illustrated Gardening Encyclopedia by Richard Sudell, printed before May 1935 for the plant names in each month, followed by details for culture and propagation. Mr. Middleton's Garden Book by Daily Express Publication, reprinted 1941 for the individual cultivar names with evergreen/deciduous, flower colour, flower month and height.

The following - in the 3 pages of Cut Flowers all the Year - ordinary garden flowers, foliage and berries (including products of the greenhouse) should be available for the decoration of the home. For convenience; they are grouped under each month. By a careful study of the different kinds, and planning ahead, amateur gardeners should be able to dispense with the need for purchasing floral decorations, a form of economy by which the appearance of the garden itself will benefit.

There are other pages on Plants which bloom in each month of the year in this website:-

The new pages (April 2016) in the gallery will have a suitable list of plants on each page (as that plant gets further detailed in the ALL PLANTS INDEX GALLERY), then each row containing that plant name in the GARDEN STYLE INDEX GALLERY will also be updated. I aim to input details of plants starting with A in alphabetical order to Z.

3. In order for you to go into your garden, there must be mystery in it, so that from any position in the house you cannot see all the garden, otherwise you will not be tempted to go out into it.
4. You must decide what garden style you are going to use THROUGHOUT the garden and make sure of using 3. the mystery in it as well.
5. What plants do you want to keep in your existing garden and incorporate into your new garden?

Control of Pests (Aphids, Rabbits, Deer, Mice, Mole, Snails) / Disease by Companion Planting in Garden

Whether your Heavy Clay or Light Sandy / Chalk Soil is excessively Alkaline (limy) / Acidic or not, then there is an Action Plan for you to do with your soil, which will improve its texture to make its structure into a productive soil instead of it returning to being just sand, chalk, silt or clay.

Problems caused by builders:- 1. Lack of soil on top of builders rubble in garden of just built house.
2. Clay soil of Garden slopes towards house with no drainage of this rainwater by the house wall.

In planning your beds for your garden, before the vertical hard-landscaping framework and the vertical speciman planting is inserted into your soft landscaping plan, the following is useful to consider:-
1. The ground plan usually depends upon 1 or more unalterable existing features. The position of the doors of the house will dictate the positions of paths, the shortest route to the kitchen may indicate the best place for a paved area for eating and drinking out of doors, or the kept trees/shrubs may indicate what garden style is used.
2. Rules of Proportion -
A. A border should be roughly 1/2 as wide as the hedge or wall behind it.
B. The proportion of planted areas to paved or turfed areas should be 1/3 to 2/3, or a 1/4 to 3/4, not 1/2 and 1/2.
C. Within a bed or border, unless a 2-dimensional pattern on the ground is the objective, the height and bulk of the plants should be varied to avoid monotony; it is particularly important to provide strong planting, in terms of either height or bulk or both, at either end of a long bed.
D. The ground surface provides a background to the plants that is as important as the hedges, walls or fences that surround it. Grass is perhaps the most satisfying carpet to use, the cool green forming a restful antidote to the dancing colours of the flowers. Use different coloured pea-shingle inside Cedar Gravel for people in wheelchairs, or infirm in their legs or who suffer from Hay Fever.

STAGE 4C CULTIVATION, POSITION, USE GALLERY
Some extra details about the Cultivation Requirements of Plant:- Outdoor /Garden Cultivation, Indoor / House Cultivation, Cool Green-house Cultivation with artificial heating in the Winter, Conservatory Cultivation with heating throughout the year, and Stovehouse Cultivation with heating throughout the year for Tropical Plants

Since 2006, I have requested photos etc from the Mail-Order Nurseries in the UK and later from the rest of the World. Few nurseries have responded.
I worked for a lady, who with her husband took 35 mm slides of plants in the 1960's and 1970's. She allowed me to digitise some of her Kodachrome slides, which I have used in my website. I discovered that at least the green colour of the foliage became very much darker over that period of years to 2008, by comparing wildflower photos from her slides with digital photos supplied by a current Wildflower mail-order nursery, so I stopped creating my Foliage Galleries.
I bought myself a camera some years ago and started taking photos, some of which have been put into the website. I started taking photos of the Heathers at the Royal Horticultural Society at Wisley garden. I have displayed the Heathers foliage in closeup since their leaves are 2mm long and in macro-scale in the Heather Galleries - sometimes the foliage colour at the terminal end of the foliage stem is only a few leaves, whereas others have the same foliage colour throughout the stem. I discovered that some of the heathers did not have the correct plant label, since the flower colour did not correspond with the flower colour in the literature. I was informed that since kids have free rein, that perhaps they move the plant labels. Since, I cannot rely that the heather plant label next to the heather plant is valid, I have stopped taking photos of those heathers.
This leaves a small problem, especially since very few gardens open to the public have their plants labelled so that the public can use the data on their label to buy that named plant from a nursery or garden centre. Currently (June 2018) I insert photos from Wikimedia Commons as well as my own.
I have found the above book - which does not contain any colour plant photos. Since it had the following experts help in creating it, I have decided to use its information in these 9 galleries to help the public:-

  • T.W. Sanders Editor of Amateur Gardening in 1895.
  • A.J Macself Editor of Amateur Gardening in 1926 - both Sanders and Macself had worked entirely to the handlists published by the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew
  • A.G.L. Hellyer in this work of revision and also in checking the all-important cultural notes sought the help of experts in the various classes of plant:-
    • Mr S.A. Pearce, Assistant Curator at the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew undertook the revision of those genera of plants which in this country are mainly grown under glass.
    • Mr Will Ingwersen dealt with the Rock plants,
    • Mr N. Catchpole made himself responsible for trees and shrubs;
    • Mr G.A Phillips for herbaceous plants,
    • Mrs Francis Perry for water plants,
    • Mr A.J. Macself for ferns,
    • Mr E. Cooper for orchids,
    • Mr J.S Dakers for annuals,
    • Miss Doreen Crowther for fruit and vegetables

with the aid of further information from other books, magazines and cross-checking on the internet.
In this edition of the book Sander's Encyclopaedia, the individual soil mixtures to grow plants have been retained, for it was considered that many gardeners might still wish to use them in certain circumstances. The John Innes mixtures may be substituted wherever desired. Details of these individual mixtures will be put into these galleries.

Scented Flora of the World by Roy Genders - was first published in 1977 and this paperback edition was published on 1 August 1994 ISBN 0 7090 5440 8:-
This comprehensive book looks at scented flowers and leaves of plants from all over the world. The work has been prepared to the standards of the Index Kewensis, and is filled with the most interesting facts about the scented flora of the world.

I am using the above book from someone who took 30 years to compile it from notes made of his detailed observations of growing plants in preference to
The RHS Companion to Scented Plants Hardcover – 16 Oct 2014 by Stephen Lacey (Author), Andrew Lawson (Photographer) ISBN 978-0-7112-3574-8 even though this is the only major reference work on scent and scented plants which is endorsed by the Royal Horticultural Society. See reasons for stopping infilling of previous Sense of Fragrance section on 28/07/2016 at end of Sense of Fragrance from Stephen Lacey Page.

The Propagation of Alpines by Lawrence D. Hills. Published in 1950 by Faber and Faber Limited describes every method of propagation for 2,500 species. Unlike modern books published since 1980, this one states exactly what to do and is precisely what you require if you want to increase your alpines.

Ramblers Scramblers & Twiners by Michael Jefferson-Brown (ISBN 0 - 7153 - 0942 - 0) describes how to choose, plant and nurture over 500 high-performance climbing plants and wall shrubs, so that more can be made of your garden if you think not just laterally on the ground but use the vertical support structures including the house as well.

The Gardener's Illustrated Encyclopedia of Climbers & Wall Shrubs - A Guide to more than 2000 varieties including Roses, Clematis and Fruit Trees by Brian Davis. (ISBN 0-670-82929-3) provides the lists for 'Choosing the right Shrub or Climber' together with Average Height and Spread after 5 years, 10 years and 20 years.
