could anybody please tell me the plant in the picture (umbrella plant) can be planted in the garden and which conditions need?




It's awfully blurry.. :-s
I don't think it's hardy enough to plant out in the garden. You might get away with giving it a holiday in the garden during the summer. It's not what I know as an umbrella plant, I think... so far as I can see.

I think the picture now is much clear, regarding the name , I found it today at Homebase, but it has been written on the label that it should be kept in worm room!!

That's better Ehsanraya! It's Schefflerea. See
All sources seem to agree that it's a houseplant only. It wants a bright room but doesn't like direct strong sunlight.

It looks like an umbrella plant to me.

Used to be called Heptapleurum, now Schefflera and I can tell you from experience it won't tolerate being outside, unless you just stand it in a shady area for a month in the middle of summer when its warm. It can't cope with direct sun, it burns, and its tender, won't tolerate anything close to frost, so it's a houseplant. And yours needs a bigger pot...
