Garden design tool

Question from Joanne Evans

In forum: Garden design

I've been using the garden design tool for a little while. The problem I am having is that it does not create designs to scale when they are printed out e.g. if a drawing is printed out on A4 what scale is this? Is there something I am missing or do I need to upgrade to be a Pro Member for this functionality? Joanne

What is this plant?!

Comment from Kali

In forum: Identify a plant

Hello, I have been given a small pot plant that looks as if it has been grown by some sort of bonsai technique. It is 1-2 foot high in the pot, with green, waxy leaves that grow off the stem in a staggered manner. There are no flowers as yet. The roots are the most exciting feature, growing from a fairly small trunk in a bulbous fashion..... I have no idea what the plant is and what sort of care it needs, so would be very grateful for any advice. Thank you.

Indoor plant

Comment from Simon John Banks

In forum: Identify a plant

Hi, I have an indoor plant that stands about four or five feet tall, it consists of a single woody stem, and has bunches of leaves drooping down as shown. The leaves have recently started to fall off although there has also been some vigorous new growth at the top of the plant. I do not remember as many leaves falling last year, if any. Help much appreciated.
Thank you, Simon
