Forum home Garden design

A useful site pointed out to me on the forum about plants to step on on a patio or steps etc

www.stepables.com is an American site but you can get the plants here. I wanted it for my steps am now going also going to have a go with my patio. Why grout it when you can plant in the gaps. You can select light medium or heavy traffic, light or shade or part shade and hardiness.

    That's not an advert Hosta - I pointed the site out to Wrightt in response to a genuine query asked - I don't have any connection to the site and as wrightt didn't raise it, I doubt they do either  :)

    Don't think it's an advert ... the OP is a fairly regular poster ... it is worded rather like an ad tho ...

    I don't think we need to flag this one Hosta. Wright is a genuine poster sharing advice given by raisingirl on this thread here ⬇

    Edit: oops, I got caught in the time lapse wormhole, Dove and raisingirl have snuck in 😄.

    I'm not sure that this is spam. If I'm reading it correctly, it's the info that is being promoted rather than the commerce. ie: because we're in the UK we wouldn't order the plants from here but simply use the site to find the names of recommended plants for specific locations.

    That said, the differences in climate might compromise the info somewhat.

    I may be wrong, Hosta!

    Edited: I have only just seen the other replies!

    Sorry did not mean it to sound like an advert but when raisin girl said to me look at Have a look at agroforestry sites for under-storey planting I found out that it was such a useful site I thought that I would attach the web address.

    Sorry Wrightt, It looked like so many postings we get trying to plug a company, worded so it wasn't being too blatant.
    I see now that it is not and that your intentions were entirely decent. Forgive me.
