High Maintenance Plant Divas

High Maintenance Plant Divas – what are these??


 Well, exactly what they sound like.

High Maintenance Plant Diva’s are just that; plants that require lots of care and attention if you want them to look good.
Provide them with all they desire & you will end up with beautiful, stunning, wonderful plants that stop you in your tracks.
But like all Diva’s if you fail to lavish them with the care and attention they require – your show stopping garden will quickly disappoint.


Now we aren’t saying don’t plant any of these in your garden, some of them are beautiful plants and worthy of having (some are never worth having), but you should not plant these if your aim is to create a low maintenance garden!


These are plants for people who love to garden,  who don’t mind the work these plants will always create; the attention seeking, deadheading, tying up, trimming, pruning, taming rampant growth spurts, preventing plant diseases & battling earwigs and slugs!
