Question from GILL FOX

I have two yuccas which I grow in doors by a south facing patio window. They are well established, approx 1.5m tall. Just recently they have been producing a sticky substance from their leaves which is playing havoc with our flooring! Is this normal for yuccas or am I doing something wrong? Gill F

Why is my lemon tree losing its leaves?

Question from Paula J LaPierre

I have had a potted lemon tree for 18 months--putting it outside for the summer and keeping indoors all winter (I live in Montreal, Canada). Of late it has been loosing leaves a lot though it is still blooming and I am fertilizing the blooms by hand. Most advice says leaf drop is usually caused by over watering but that is not true in my case. What else can be wrong? Thanks, Paula

Anthedesia Pink

Question from Brian Langbridge

I have an Anthedesia Pink which is very happy in our bathroom.
The plant has got several flowers still on it but a lot of 'leggy ' leaf stalks.
Can I trim back these stalks to make the plant more compact?

Can anyone help me identify this houseplant

Comment from Simon Vivian

This beautiful and unusual house plant has been sitting on my mother-in-law's kitchen windowsill for years. Can anyone help identify it. Photos taken in February with plant flowering. Seems robust as it has been given little care.

Does anybody know where I can buy a Pilea peperomioides (Chinese Money or Missionary Plant)?

Question from Lisa Scott

I've seen them looking gorgeous on Pinterest but am having difficulty tracking one down here in the UK.
The RHS website no longer has any suppliers listed either :(.
Any pointers would be very much appreciated.
Thanking you in anticipation.

A good dark room plant

Question from Patrick

My daughter wants a plant in her room. The room gets NO sunlight and I don't know much about plants. Can someone help me to find a plant that will be successful in growing in this type of situation? A plant that is small, easy to care for, and something she will like. A good starter plant.
