Garden Problems & how to solve them


Garden Problems – and how to solve them


We have loads of tips and advice so you can find a solution to most common garden problems alongside practical solutions for sorting them out.


As always, we try to do things a little different at PlantPlots, so you won’t find whatlower-maintenance chemicals to spray onto your dahlias or how to prune your roses, there are plenty of websites that so just that.


Our advice tries to deal with the real issues we all face in the garden. The advice we offer assumes; you don’t have a full time gardener nor do you have a garden designer on hand. The budget for the garden can’t cost thousands of pounds and you have limited time to do all these things.


You won’t see images of beautiful (& hugely expensive) manicured gardens because most of us won’t have a garden that looks like that. You will however find lots of sensible, practical and useful advice on how to get things right yourself.
