Some questions from our discussion groups
- As well as this mailing list PFAF also has a set of discussion
groups linked to each page in the site and the plants in the database.
We get quite a few people posting questions to these groups
which might spark a bit of discussion. I'm posting some
of these queries below. If you do reply it would be great
if you also reply to the email address of the sender.

Caravan site with a shady wood with Oak trees & Mountain Ash.
Ground is Grey Clay so its slim on the top in Winter & like
concrete in Summer.Loads of Fiberous Tree roots. Need lists
of Plants & Shrubs.Its also on a Slop facing due South in
I grow various unusual tubers in my raised vegetable beds:
oxalis tuberosa, tropaeolum tuberosum , apios americana,
dioscorea batatas (that one does not do well, probably too
cold without protection), yacon. I wonder if any or all of
them will benefit from a load of compost, and whether it is
good to grow them in the same place year after year?
Myrtus Ugni: I have had two plants for some three years, one in a
bed, one in poorish soil in the front garden. One was fruiting
when I bought it, never has done since. The other was rather
bigger when I bought it and has never fruited. The fruit were
delicious, but how to get them to give me some more?

I need a recommendation for a good ground cover plant for a home
located on Galveston Bay south of Houston, Texas. It has been
suggested that I use "Asian Jasmine". I have very little knowledge
of gardening, let alone this specific plant. Please help! Thanks!
I have a large area planted with junipers for erosion control. My
problem is controlling the grass that grows within the plants.
Is there a way to stop the growth of grass and not damage the plants?
