Types of Plants – Ground Cover Plants 1


Ground Cover plants are low growing, spreading shrubs which can cover a large area of ground, usually quite quickly. They suppress weeds and require very little attention.

Care: Clear the ground of weeds and dig over the soil, add well-rotted organic matter and fertiliser if required. Water the plants thoroughly before planting. Dig a hole twice as big as the pot. Plant at the same level as it was in the pot. Firm well, water and mulch.

    In small gardens I tend to agree that it can become invasive, however, it does provide excellent ground cover and has lovely flowers. As long as you keep on top of it I think it is an excellent plant.
