Choosing plants for the garden can be a tricky job. One simple rule should always apply. ‘choose the right plant for the right place’. Plants will always do best if they are growing in conditions as close to their natural habitat as possible. Plants such as Aloa cristata, Arctotis, Eryngium maritimum, Escholtzia, Agave and Yucca not only look fantastic but will best suit a hot sunny bed. Finishing off with gravel will also look great, keep down weeds and reduce water loss.
