    Caring for Festive house plants

    This was one of our most popular posts on facebook over the Christmas period, so we hope you find it useful too. Like many keen gardeners I'm usually given at least one pot plant as a Christmas present. But to my shame I'm much better at looking after outdoor plants than those that grow indoors. In order to preserve my reputation as a gardener I have to do a bit of homework on any new houseplant that comes into my care. If you're the same I've shared my top tips for keeping festive houseplants going for as long as possible.

    Winter Berries

    Do you believe the old tale about lots of berries meaning a hard winter? I'm inclined to since the past few years have seen bumper berry crops coinciding with very cold winters... what do you think, is it fanciful or is there some truth in it?

    Topiary and Roof Gardens - The Great British Garden Revival

    On paper these two topics of The great British Garden Revival sounded a bit dry- but both were inspirational, interesting and got us ready to get out the topiary shears and start lugging pots and plants up on the roof!

    Cancellations!

    It was a shame that the cottage Garden and Houseplant episodes of Great British Garden Revival weren't aired last night. We'll have to wait a bit longer.

    Front gardens - Great British Garden Revival

    Joe Swift mentioned Convolvulus cneorum in the Great British Garden Revival just as we've been saying how good they are in the garden here at Unwins.

    Front gardens

    I was a tiny bit disappointed by the front gardens part of the programme - Those North East gardens were really inspiring but the vast expanses of concrete and paving in parts of the country did make it seem like an uphill battle to introduce plants.

    Wildflowers Monty Don divides opinion among gardeners but I must admit I like his style of gardening and he's never afraid to experiment.

    Great British Garden Revival could be Great News for Garden Lovers!

    This is just the gardening fix us green-fingered addicts need on cold dark winter nights. Even if you are a gardener who shuts down when winter comes this is a marvellous way to inspire next spring and summers display. Winter is prime planning time as we know only to well here at Unwins.

    Front Gardens-Great British Garden Revival

    Joe Swift is always great to listen to and watch, so his front garden piece is bound to be inspirational - it has brightened up the scheduling that's for sure! I was beginning to despair of seeing any gardening on TV until Spring at the earliest.
