There comes a time when we think about new plants in the garden. With the arrival of spring, I love seeing new clematis, shrubs, perennial flowers in the greenhouse, ready to be planted outside in the garden.
In my experience of ordering or buying new plants, I realized that:
- you need to look at the leaves of plants from below if they are sold at a discount. Maybe there are pests. This can infect other plants.
- the size of the plant must match the size of the pot. If the roots are small and the flower is planted in a large pot, then most likely its roots will die.
- you need to be sure that such a plant suits you in the garden - I always look at the climatic zone of the plant. My zone is 5b and for example, that's why I refuse rhododendron for zone 6. Although they are very beautiful :)
- for decorate the porch, I prefer to buy or grow plants that can be used inside in winter.
Probably, many of the gardeners have experience in buying and ordering plants for the garden. Share with us!
