Hi I want to learn about plants, not in detail but recognizing them and knowing what soil, sun shade they like. I have an RHS book called plants for places, but I don’t know with which plant to start learning about. The book has sections on shrubs, climbers, perennials. I have started looking at shrubs, Acer Palmatum bloodgood and Magnolia Soulangeana, but I don’t feel im learning much. Where I work, the garden center has a section of bedding plants and outdoor perennials, I feel I should learn bedding plants as i look at peoples gardens and see all the bright colours and think to myself, i wish i knew what that plant is called. I work with the outdoor plants, I deadhead Rhododendrons.
