Yes it’s true , hard to believe that pampas grass can grow in Croydon. You can find it in abundance at Coombe Gardens. As Terence Meredith , resident gardener explained the pampas was kept out all year and not transplanted to the nurseries during the winter

As it features in my blog logo, sunflower plants are one of my favourites, so I was quite envious that Terence was able to grow his sunflowers to a spectacular height. The secret is providing staked support to the plants at the early stages to ensure steady growth.
