???????? Ceanothus In Bloom ????????⁠


Ceanothus looks beautiful this time of year. It’s a stunning sight, smothered in flowers in shades that range from powder blue to deep azure.⁠

Comes in many varieties, sizes and shapes. Very easy to look after if in good quality soil. ⁠

Amazing for the wildlife, especially bees ???? ⁠

It's common name is Californian Lilac. ⁠

???? Croton ????⁠

Croton are beautiful house plants, grown for their bold and striking foliage. They’re also known as Joseph’s coat as their thick, oval, pointed leaves are splashed with many colours, including red, pink, burgundy, orange, yellow and green.⁠

Crotons need need plenty of bright light, a consistently warm spot and high humidity. They can take some direct sunshine but keep them away from direct midday sun. ⁠

Keep the soil moist at all times from spring to autumn. Use tepid water and make sure any excess has drained away. Water less in winter, allowing the top few centimetres of compost to dry out between watering.⁠

Mist the leaves daily with tepid water.⁠

Feed every two weeks with a balanced house plant fertiliser.⁠

Wipe the leaves occasionally with a damp cloth to remove dust.⁠

???? Brighten up your home or office, come and pick yours up from our Houseplant Department ⁠????⁠

#croton #houseplants #meadowcroftgardencentre #meadowcrofthouseplants
Alstroemeria (Peruvian lily) ????⁠

A popular garden border plant as it is hardy & easy to grow. ⁠
They look fantastic in a sunny border amongst other perennials and shrubs, especially roses. Also ideal for growing in pots. ⁠

The flowers are highly attractive to bees and pollinating insects. ????⁠

Once flowers have faded, rather than just cutting off the dead head, remove the whole stem by gently pulling it from the base of the clump – this stimulates new growth. ⁠
