Laidback Gardener TIp of the Day

Just Say No to Problem Plants

août 24 foreverfitlife.comDid you know that some plants are known for the problems they cause? They are naturally prone to disease and insects, have branches that break, easily freeze in winter, are highly invasive … and the list continues. So why plant them? Before buying a plant, ask the nursery if the plant has known recurring problems… and if it does, buy something else!

Garden writer and blogger, author of 65 gardening books, lecturer and communicator, the Laidback Gardener, Larry Hodgson, passed away in October 2022. Known for his great generosity, his thoroughness and his sense of humor, he reached several generations of amateur and professional gardeners over his 40-year career. Thanks to his son, Mathieu Hodgson, and a team of contributors, will continue its mission of demystifying gardening and making it more accessible to all.
