Selecting a Plant

When you find that perfect plant at a nursery, there's nothing more disheartening than getting it home, preparing your site, planting it and then tending to its every need, only to watch it fail to thrive. This can be because you've picked up a sick or stressed plant. Tino has a few warning signs to look for so this won't happen to you. A good nursery will go through their flora every morning and pick out all their sick or diseased plants. The first and most obvious thing to look out for is the general appearance of your plant. Does it look healthy or is it a bit tired? Is there any physical damage such as broken limbs, gauges or splits in the stem, and wilting or discoloured leaves?
