Whether you're looking for edibles for your windowsill, potted plants for your balcony or climbers for your garden, there's something for everyone. Handy plant profiles tell you why to grow it, where to put it and how to look after it, helping your plants to thrive without too much maintenance from you!

One of just 12 national RHS Ambassadors, he’s built an incredible reputation through his expertise, affable personality and brilliance in plant knowledge and garden design and has just become the first person in history to win all medals available for his first ever garden, designed for Wedgwood, at the RHS Chatsworth Flower Show.
