How To Easily Choose The Right Plants For Your Garden

(It’s Easier Than You Think To Be A ‘Plant Whisperer’)*

Plants will tell you exactly what conditions they need to flourish, if you know what to look for…

This may surprise you, but plants do talk to us. Not with language as you and I know it, but with their own ‘special’ communications. By understanding a small amount of key clues you can glean a wealth of information that will help you understand plants, their needs, how to have healthy specimens that don’t die on you!

Does this sound familiar?

  • Purchased lots of plants and had them die on you in weeks, or worse days?
  • Have trouble knowing what conditions your plants need and where best to plant them in your garden?
  • Tried trial and error plant purchases which have cost you a lot of time and money with fatalities?

GeraniumIt’s OK. It Doesn’t Have to be This Difficult

If you have experienced any of the above, it’s really not your fault. Compared to our ancestors, the majority of us aren’t raised learning about how things grow, nor are we taught how to nurture plants when we’re children.

So, it’s not really surprising we find it tough as adults. And books, magazines and TV make learning about plants overly complicated. Some information sources are better than others but they all make it hard work and not at all easy.

Trying to learn hundreds of different plants and their growing conditions is hard and time consuming.

It doesn’t have to be like that though. You may think that it will take years to learn about plants (horticulturalists will certainly help you to think that) but it doesn’t have to.

Plants have evolved over the years to grow in a vast array of conditions. Plants that grow in certain environments tend to share key characteristics.

By learning a handful of these characteristics, you’ll be able to instantly tell what a plant needs just by looking at it. You don’t even need to know a plant’s name to choose the right location for it.

So how do I know which plants will grow where?

How can you easily learn to be a 'Plant Whisperer' as well?

RACHEL-AUTHORI’m Rachel Mathews and I've been an international garden designer for over 20 years. In that time, I’ve designed gardens all over the world from the UK and USA to Malaysia, Australia, Switzerland to Spain and beyond!

I've worked with nearly every type of climate from tropical to freezing cold. How on earth do I know so many plants around the globe?

Truth is, I don't!

I cheat!

The key is to know the plant characteristics, not the plant name. Plant names are certainly helpful to know, but they are not vital, if you know what to look for...

The key is in observing the leaves - 60-70% of the time they will tell you precisely what conditions a plant needs in order to survive...

For example...

ALL silver coloured leaves are designed to withstand hot/sunny conditions. ALL silver/grey foliage plants NEED to be in sun in order to survive. The silver/grey acts as a sun shade. If you stick a plant with those types of leaves in shade, it won't be able to get enough light and make adequate food.

silver-plant

Cotton Lavender (Santolina - silver foliage plant at the front)

That means it WILL die!

Plants can adjust a little bit. The grey leaves will go a bit greener, but even so, they're just not designed for the shade, so they won't ever do well.

So that's just one example of an easy to spot, plant characteristic. There's a ton more, just as simple. Just learn those characteristics, and you'll be able to tell at least 60% (if not more) of the time, what condition a plant needs, just by looking at its leaves.

Think how much TIME (and effort) it saves learning a few characteristics, instead of hundreds of plants individually!

Not got the time to research plants?

Well, that's where the 5 Minute Plant Expert comes in. I've put all the knowledge I've gained on how to know which plant grows where, into an easy to follow, online course.

Introducing the 5 Minute Plant Expert - the cheat's way to quickly learning about plants...

Would you like to be able to look at plants, and know instantly, where in your garden they will grow?

If you would, then the 5 Minute Plant Expert will show you.

It took me YEARS of studying plants, to work out the clues they give us, and 'know' what plants grow where.

I've put ALL my knowledge, collected over 30 years (yes, I started this when I was a kid, thanks to a bizarre car game my father used to play, that was the horticultural version of 'I spy!') in to the 5 Minute Plant Expert.
