Fuss Free Plants

Are you someone who loves having plants in your garden but doesn't love looking after them? No Problem!

Here are four fuss free plants that you don't have to worry so much about:

  • Strelitzia - The brilliant orange and blue blooms of strelitzia are quite happy to do their own thing. Once established, it is very hardy and tolerates long dry spells. Plant in full or part sun in well drained soil.
  • Agave - This perennial succulent is much loved by landscape designers, who use them for feature plantings. Plant in full sun and well drained soil.
  • Mondo Grass - With tufts of dark-green grassy foliage, mondo grass makes an attractive addition to any low-maintenance garden. Plant in full sun to part shade in well drained soil.
  • Yucca - For a spectacular addition to the garden, go for a yucca. This strong, architectural plant looks great growing along borders or as a specimen planting in a garden bed. Plant in full sun and well drained soil.
