About Plants

For all garden lovers purchasing plants is the most challenging job. What happens when you drive all the way to the nursery and don’t find the plants you are looking for? You come back disappointed. To avoid that disappointment, we will help you in making the right choice for your garden plants. Plants are simply living things that can grow in water as well as land. But not all of them can grow in all the climates and lands. We all know a plant can feed themselves by making their food from sunlight. For perfect growth, they need energy, air, and water.

However, each plant has a unique look with distinct-looking seeds, fruits, flowers, leaves, stems, and roots. Growing plants has various advantages. They make your gardens, yards, and homes look beautiful. They provide fresh air to the environment. At the same time, some of them can be consumed as well, depending on their characteristics. They are classified based on various characteristics such as growth patterns, height, life cycle, seeds, etc. Along with various types, plants have two groups. One group has all the plants that develop flowers. The second group has ferns and mosses that don’t develop flowers. We will discuss their classification based on growth habits and the presence of seeds.

Types of plants

A plant has almost 95% of the water in it. Most of them are rooted in the ground and cannot move from one place to another. Every day, we see different plants around us, and all have the same features. There are plenty of varieties available in our surroundings. If you are a true plant lover, you will be able to recognize most types around you. To buy the best plants, you must know the options available for you. If you are a beginner, you can hop to our product search engine, Shops.ae. It is one of the leading websites with over 500 brands and stores to choose from. The shops on our website will fulfil all your plating needs. Below are some of the types that you can choose from. 

Climbers

Climbers are the advanced version of creepers. They also have lean, extended, and fragile stems that can’t stay straight without support. But with the help of outer support, they can carry their weight and grow upright. Since their stems are soft, you can tie them around tall objects or trees lightly. They are one of the fastest-growing plants. The advantage of climbers is that you can plant them indoors and outdoors as well. Some examples of climbers are grapevine, money plant, hydrangea, pea plant, and jasmine.

Trees

Trees are a kind of plant that is tall and strong. The stems of the trees are heavy, wooden, and dense. These stems are also called trunks. These trunks have branches on which leaves grow. But some trees don’t have branches, such as coconut trees. These types of trees have a single stem on which fruits, flowers, and leaves grow. The age of trees is of many years as they are large. All you need to do is water them timely and voila! As compared to others, trees are pretty low maintenance. If you don’t have the space to grow a tree, you can transform your favourite tree into a bonsai plant! Bonsai is the smaller version of a tree that grows in a pot and is not rooted. Some examples of trees are neem, oak, teak, and banyan.

Herbs & shrubs

Herbs are small in size, along with fragile, green, and smooth stems. They have a short life cycle, usually of one to two seasons. Herbs usually don’t have branches. They can be easily removed from the soil and can move from one location to another. You can consume herbs without worrying as they contain many nutrients. Some examples of herbs are wheat, physalis, and tomato. On the other hand, shrubs are medium in size as they are taller than herbs and shorter than trees. They have hard and woody stems with some flexibility. Unlike herbs, the age of shrubs is not one or two seasons. Their age differs from species to species. Some shrubs can even grow throughout the year and are called evergreen shrubs. Oleander is an evergreen shrub, is also one of the top plants for gardens. Other examples of shrubs are lemon and rose.

Flowering & non-flowering

Flowering plants are the most alluring, aesthetic, and distinct kinds of plants. Their common characteristic is that all of them have seeds. Any plant that has a seed can grow flowers. They further have two categories, namely flowering annual and flowering perennial. The major difference between the two is that flowering annuals die in winters. In contrast, flowering perennials grow flowers each year and are planted only once. Some examples of flowering plants are sunflower, daffodil, and marigold.
