Any garden changes as time passes and some plants will outgrow their space, or die off. Shrubs that are obviously too large should be removed and ones of more suitable size planted instead. If plants die, suitable replacements are needed.

There are plants for every situation and soil type, fewer for the more difficult conditions and more for good conditions. Choose plants that are suited to site and soil, and to your own preference. There is a list of plants in our plant directory at: and you can search according to type, size, season and conditions.

Make an initial list of choices and then visit garden centres and choose the ones you like best.
