Exotic Plants

Exotic Plants
Exotic plants may serve as a reminder of a holiday in warmer climates. Equally they may derive their description from their exotic name or from their peculiar shape or habit which suggests they originate from warmer Mediterranean countries or even the tropics. Some of these exotic plants may need winter protection but many do not.
This is our favourite selection, full plant list can be found by using the a-z on the right hand menu or using the keyword search top right, if you need something specific.

PROTEA

PROTEA

Despite the casualties from the colder winter of 2010/11 proteas are much easier to grow than many people imagine and can readily be grown outside in milder areas PROVIDING the soil is very free draining, acidic and low in nutrients (ie no fertiliser containing phosphates). Full sun and a south facing slope would be ideal. To avoid proteas getting wet feet it is helpful to plant them on a raised mound and add bark or grit for improved drainage.
