  2. Hi I have a 26. Foot by 3ft north facing border in Shetland I would like to reorganise the whole bit what plants would you advise

    1. Hi Winnie
      I could rattle off names of shrubs and perennials which have a preference or can at least tolerate North facing positions. However, Shetland that is outside of my experience. best talk to the locals.

  3. I found your site when looking for advice on abutilons, and a really good site it is too. We have a tall red abutilon that may not survive the winter even although we have put it into our unheated greenhouse. I am going to try cuttings even although it is now late autumn.
    I read your comments about your abutilon dying back after a hard winter, this has happened to me too despite our Gulf Stream climate. A visitor told me this year that abutilons need to be very well staked as wind is often behind their downfall and that 3 stakes would not be excessive.
