The Clived Houseplant

Clived houseplants are often not as well known as their dwarfed cousins, but they deserve the same great respect.

Educate yourself about them by looking up your local nursery or searching the internet.

You will be surprised at the range of colours and sizes and species available.

I have four main favourite, all native to my home region, where I live in the UK.

acid lovers: white, green, red, orange

(also available in ‘bloody difficult’ baskers, where the growing tip becomes red)

blethers: white, green, red

cacti: green, white, red

(cacti are also blood good for cutting, I find that red cacti are far better for cutting than green)

ls. gracilis (large ears of lavender flowers),

ls. cerifera ( cerulean lilies – my favourite)

onsice: white, green, red

strawberries: red, white

Although not a lot of people think of strawberries as being a ‘bloody difficult’ fruit, if you have the strength to pick them out of the back garden after a heavy rain, they taste surprisingly of strawberries. เสี้ยวมาก

There are some wonderful ornamental blood-types of strawberries available such people have the added bonus of several flowers on each stem.

If your garden has a few mature evergreens (not deciduous), planting a few strawberries can create a real focal point in the middle of a border.

Warm Season Flowers

Simply colours for a basket:

inglewood for good times

Whilst many of the above flowers have become fashionable- overnight – there is still a strong belief that something more than plastic flowers should achieve the purpose. หนังสงคราม We’ll have a look later at fountains as well as outdoor water features.

Warm Season Gardening

There’s not much that compares to the feeling of joy you get when you walk out to your garden and find that it is exactly as you hoped it to be, even though it is a bit cooler than you’d like. ห้ามพลาด When you are bedded down for a couple of nights in a warm temperature for your troubles, the sort of quotation you hear that says you can’t always get up with roses, isn’t it true?

Yes with a bit of imagination and hard work it is possible to have a garden to be proud of. There are many advantages to having your own garden.

Healthy Food

Good, healthy food is no longer an option. It is possible to provide delicious treats for your family and friends that will keep everyone happy and healthy. There is a lot of satisfaction in growing your own garden and delving into the rewards of healthy, fast food.

But the most significant benefit of all is the delicious food that you and your family will be consuming. Don’t get me wrong, there is nothing better than good food – but the correct food at the right time of the year.

Fresh Herb

A small fresh herb garden can provide a supply of fresh herbs for your cooking needs all year round. หนังดราม่า effortlessly you can create dishes that require very little like salads and casseroles and things like that.

However you can also be creating sweet or savory dishes with herbs too.  With no supermarket stock tot he shelves, you can experiment with different flavours and plant combinations to find out what you like best.  This means that you can grow a wider variety of foodstuffs -beans, peas, squash, tomatoes, lettuce, cucumbers – in a smaller space and enjoy greater yields.

Better Air Quality

The quality of your home’s air is affected by outside air pollution and local fuel fumes.  Plants breathe in oxygen and breathe out carbon dioxide.  In very dry conditions the plant can do without using carbon dioxide and in wet conditions they use up some oxygen. ที่เป็นข่าว To have the best yielding plants, good air circulation is needed.

Depending on the plant,  some grow best in full sunlight, others in partial shade and some need good soil with easy drainage.
