    A tough little evergreen shrub with oval, hairy, grey leaves and cheerful, bright yellow, daisy-like flowers in June and July. It's drought tolerant and forms a natural mound. Try it with other silver-leaved plants or as part of a Mediterranean scheme or as a groundcover for a sunny, well-drained site.

The 'Fiery Summer' ready made border-is it ok for a clay border in the sun and changing a plant? Hello, I am about to order the above border but there is one plant I am not too keen on which is the plume poppy. Could you suggest a good alternative, please, and also, will the whole border be suitable for clay soil in a sunny position? Thanks for your help, Julia

Julia Luck

Thank you, Helen. This does help,- I can go ahead and order now. Thank you, Julia

Julia Luck

Hello Julia, This border will be fine in clay soil as long as it does not hold water for any length of time and it has plenty of composted organic matter dug in. As for the Macleaya, you could sub it for the following 1 x Brachyglottis or 3 more Helenium Waldtraut I hope this helps. Helen Plant Doctor

Advice required please... Hello, I wonder if you can please help. I have a west facing balcony that gets the sun most of the afternoon - so gets pretty hot during the summer. I would really like to get some pretty flowering plants but have no idea what would be suitable for this area. Could you please advise. Many thanks Clare

C Mul

Hello Clare, The first thing I would strongly recommend is that you install an automatic watering system as plants on a sunny balcony will dry out very quickly. If watering is not going to be a problem, then can choose from any of the following Bergenia Viburnum tinus Cistus Lavandula Brachyglottis I hope this give you a few ideas. Helen Plant Doctor
