Now we are all told all the time that location is everything. Are we living in the right street, in the right town? Are we near to the right schools? Most important of all though: right plant, right place.
Well of course you can go wrong and sometimes almost deliberately go wrong. Sometimes how I define light shade is apparently a plants definition of pitch black. We differ in our opinions and sometimes it becomes a battle of wills to see who will give up first. Well of course I back down first, I don't want my plants not to thrive or even worse, die. Though I will confess for some bizarre reason it took me quite a long time to realise that if I had planted something in the wrong place I could just dig it up and move it. Plants have been a lot happier since I worked out that if they did not like it there, I would try them here. This was supported by the notion that if they still did not like it there the worst that could happen is that they would still die and then I might have to go and buy another plant.
Anyway, this is not a lesson in planting things in the right conditions, you can all read books and labels and work that out for yourselves I am sure. No, this is a different sort of location I want to describe.
