The following is a video of me pruning a fuchsia-flowering gooseberry Ribes speciosum. I certainly hope it is helpful because it is definitely embarrassing! It is my hope that with time I will get better at this video thing, but for the time being, please bear with my amateur attempts. If you must laugh, please […]. Starting a new garden is big. It fills me with enthusiasm, excitement, and joy.

8 design ideas for a woodland garden
Isle of Wight Kent. Sussex Warwickshire Wiltshire Worcestershire Yorkshire. Good cafe food and stylish coffee shop. The entire area was clean and free from obstructions and fallen leaves. On the day we visited it was warm weather but even so there was no signs of the large hoses that obstruct the paths of some other garden centres.
There was an outside information building with helpful plant information books. There was also a large number of informed and courteous staff to help with any enquiries. The entire outside area is open to the elements when we reviewed Woodlands Garden Centre but we did notice that a large area was enclosed by an uncovered wood structure. Possibly this is covered in early spring and winter.
The seasonal frost tender plants were on display in the garden centre itself. Outside there were lots of large and clear signs showing where particular types of plants could be found. Individual plant labelling was only average but the labels on the ornamental trees was unusually informative.
See the picture on the right for an example. At the far end of the outside area there is a fair sized display of garden sheds and a few greenhouses. All are of wood construction so this is not a place to search for aluminium greenhouses. To the sides there are areas for potting compost, fencing and lots of garden pots. There is also an area devoted to water garden features. Maidenhead Aquatics also provide a small area which sells pond plants.
All the well known shrubs, trees and plants are well represented and lots of unusual ones as well. There were no particular areas of speciality but the selection of roses, clematis, bamboos, fruit and ornamental trees was particularly impressive. See the pictures on the right of the long rows of some of these plants.
Woodlands Garden Centre have a very good record as far as plant health is concerned and on our visit all the plants were well kept and in the correct pot sizes. There was absolutely no sign of any weeds on the surface of the soil. Many of the plants sold at Woodlands Garden Centre are grown in their own nurseries.
Originally this garden centre started out in as a nursery so they have the experience and the knowledge to produce top quality plants. Aisles are wide enough for wheelchairs in almost all areas. The area is divided into distinct sections of shopping needs.
The gardening accessories area stocks all that you might expect of a large garden centre with a good selection of gardening tools, plant feeds, weed killers and other garden essentials. At most times of the year there is a full range of barbecues and chimeras which are well displayed. Clothing, cards, gifts, even luggage all have their own areas at Woodlands. The paths are wide and they are kept clear. The main cafe, the Courtyard, is unusual in that half the seating area is open to the rest of the garden centre.
The other half is enclosed and separate from the general garden centre area. The cafe area has been specifically designed for an eating area and it is a very pleasant layout for eating or simply a tea and cake. In garden centre eating area the tables and chairs are bamboo effect but in the enclosed seating area they are of wood. There is no al fresco outside seating area. If you want just a snack then the cafe has a good choice of cakes, snacks, teas and coffees.
Unusually for a garden centre cafe, Woodlands Garden Centre Courtyard cafe serves wines. Up toThe quality of the food at the Courtyard cafe is high and they rightly advertise that the majority of food is prepared and cooked on the premises.
The food certainly tastes good so top marks to the chefs.All the main meal food is on display so you know exactly what you are being offered. Service is pleasant and courteous. Waiting times are minimal even at peak times helped by the fact that you collect your meals as you queue.
As well as the main cafe described above, Woodlands Garden Centre also offer a second, much smaller cafe called the Jardino. We were so full up after eating at the main cafe that we didn't sample the offerings of the second cafe. But we can confirm that it offers a good selection of teas, coffees and cakes. It all looked very stylish with attractive furnishings and decor. It was however almost empty when we reviewed Woodlands Garden Centre at peak times. We think that this is because the cafe is tucked out of the way near the exit and is overshadowed by the much larger main cafe.
We performed a spot check on a few prices at Woodlands Garden Centre and noted that they are slightly more expensive compared to similar garden centres. Lots of small veg and bedding plants are also on offer to Garden Club members at 3 for the price of 2. The lesson is clear! Join the Garden Club and take your card with you when visit any "Garden Centre Company" garden centre. We rate different aspects of each garden centre and then give an overall rating.
We adjust the ratings for garden centre size and purpose. So for example a small nursery which is average compared to other small nurseries will be awarded two and half stars. A large garden centre which is average compared to other large garden centres will also be awarded two and a half stars. Note that the price ratings below is based on a limited range of sample prices. Pet Centre - There is a medium selection of pet foods and accessories for sale. No live pets are sold at Woodlands Garden Centre.
The range of fish for sale was smaller compared to other Maidenhead Aquatics outlets and not particularly well displayed. Water Features - A reasonable display of water features see right hand picture is on offer. Sheds and Greenhouses - Woodlands Garden centre has an excellent range of garden sheds but their greenhouse offerings are limited to a few expensive timber models. House Plants - Woodlands have made a good effort at providing a range of healthy well priced house plants.
The range is larger compared to most garden centres. On site they also have a cut flower shop. Wheelchair Access - Top marks for wheel chair access. Paths are wide and clear both inside and outside. Toilets - Ladies, gents and disabled facilities, all modern and in good condition. Website Official website is here.

University of Washington Botanic Gardens
All-green gardens are becoming popular again as the centerpieces of monochromatic landscaping. The designs are appealing and restive, driven as they are by massed ferns, moss, leaves, bark, berries, rock and foliage combinations. They serve some practical purposes, too. She said the company has seen a marked increase in consumer demand for all types of woodland plants over the last three years. One of the best attributes of plants with green foliage is that they're the chameleons of the garden, said Kate Karam, Monrovia's editorial director.
Because a stream wanders through this area there is an abundance of Jewel Weed, a plant usually found near watery edges during southern summers.

Philadelphia Orchard Project: SPRING OPEN HOUSE & PLANT SALE
The woodland contains many different organisms but plants are the biggest and most obvious. Cumberland Plain Woodland typically has a canopy of gum trees species of Eucalyptus, m high with a grassy and herbaceous understorey. There may be scattered clumps or thickets of shrubs. The multitude of groundlayer plants are not big and showy like the Banksias and Grevilleas of the sandstone areas, but small delicate creatures that need a careful eye to distinguish between them. Modern photography allows us to really appreciate their delicate beauty. Our remnant woodlands at the Australian Botanic Garden, Mount Annan contain about native plant species, as well as about 80 exotic weed species that have naturalised i.

In July and August, with funding from the Arboretum Foundation, UW Botanic Gardens horticulture staff worked on a project to restore the lower stream channel connecting the two ponds in the Woodland Garden. The channel dates back to the original Olmsted Brothers design plan for the Arboretum, and it flows over and through carefully sited rocks and boulders. Most of the rockwork was installed inIn fall , a large sweet gum tree Liquidambar styraciflua , planted by the lower Woodland Garden pond in , fell during a windstorm and caused extensive damage to the stream channel. Top photo shows the tree and pond prior to the storm. When the tree fell, the sizable root ball ripped up several large boulders and altered the adjacent stream channel and rockery.

Woodlands provide interest throughout the year and the complementary planting of wildflowers adds a beautiful element to enjoy. In the Spring, many will already have seen native wildflowers carpeting UK woodlands; the crisp white Snowdrops Galanthus nivalis fresh yellow winter aconites Eranthis hyemalis and later followed by drifts of English Bluebells Hyacynthoides non-scriptus.
Jamie Downes manages the Woodlands production nursery in Stapleton, Leicestershire, which is a mixed cropping 4 acres production nursery, as well as 3 acres at Heighley Gate in Northumberland "producing best in business bedding and pot plants".

The health benefits of raspberries make these very popular plants an ideal choice for retailers, according to Sally Drury. The recent British Protected Ornamentals Association discussion on post-AHDB arrangements featured no recognition that the industry has voted against any form of statutory levy, and for good reason.
Exploring the Native Woodland Walk with Gardener Mallory Smyth
Manzanita 'Sentinel' blooms in early January, just as the mason bees emerge from their nests. Ribes aureum is under-planted with Salvia spathaceae which creates an effective barrier against the deer, who love to nibble on the Golden Currant, but hate the smell of this Salvia even more! March begins a succession of bloom in my sunny front border; the dry, sunny slope is ideal for many of the chaparral species. April - Cobweb Thistle grew in this spot for a number of years; now it shows up in various parts of the garden where it seeds itself in.
