Care tips

Flowers grow wild on every continent in the world and have been doing so for millions of years. Although cultivating and hybridisation have given rise to a wide number of plants and flowers grown in specialised environments, there are still many thousands of species that do perfectly well by themselves.

However, when growing your own flowers and plants, nature sometimes needs a little help in order to make sure they grow big and strong. Recreating natural environments in the home or garden is not as simple as it sounds. With this in mind, we’ve put together our best tips and advice to help you turn your fingers green in no time.

Every flower and plant has specific requirements in order to grow correctly and knowing the difference between your roses and your rhododendrons can make all the difference when growing plants and flower yourself.
