Hebe Burning Heart

Question from Marc Walters

In forum: New member

I have just bought a hebe burning heart (light pink flowers) - but can not find it on the Shoots database to add it to my garden.

Does anyone know another name for this that the Shoots website might recognise

Problem with opening design to full scale and hidden parts of toolbar

Question from Denise Martin

In forum: How to use the site

I seem to have a new problem in that my design is opened only to the size of the tool boxes, also the menu at the top of the page does not completely show, for instance, the shading box. Can anyone help please?

Where can I buy Osteospermum with spoon-shaped petals, either online, or, preferably, at a nursery in the South-East? Would prefer established plants, failing that, plug plants, failing that seeds! Many thanks

The garden design planner does not work

Question from Helena Morland

In forum: Garden design

The Garden design planner do not work!
Does anyone have the same problem as I do? I am so frustrated about this, when I should start up the design planner program it just shows a blank page, and when I click on my garden design it comes up a alert that I am leaving the page.
Confused and disappointed!

There are two shoots coming from the base of my Edgeworthia Chrysantha. Can I cut them off completely to retain the tree shape, then shorten the shoots and pot?

Comment from Melissa

In forum: Edgeworthia chrysantha

There are two shoots just coming into leaf sprouting from the base of my Edgeworthia Chrysantha. Can I cut them off completely to retain the tree shape, then shorten the shoots and pot? Or should I do it in the winter?
