Choosing patio plants, trees and pots

1. Sheltered or windy position? Cube planters or large broad based terracotta pots are good for windy settings. Larger pots are less sensitive than smaller ones. Buxus balls are less likely to topple over than taller or unclipped plants. Some plants are also less tolerant of windy conditions so read the care tips first.

2. Sunny or shady? Many of our plants and topiary trees prefer a sunny position but some will tolerate shade (e.g. Box topiary). Read care tips.

3. Container gardening design. Here are a few ideas on container gardening design.

Entrances and gates will look elegant and balanced with a couple of identical containers and plants.

Grouping smaller container arrangements together or in rows will make a greater impression.

Some big or tall feature plants do not need to be grouped together to draw attention but remember that size is relative to the surroundings.

Staying with the same model (but maybe different sizes) and colour in a group of pots instills harmony.

On the other hand mixing colours, shapes, sizes will definitely give your terrace a more personal and less formal touch!

Container gardening

Container gardening is perfect for anyone with space for one pot or a hundred. Plants in containers will add character to any small or big garden.

  • A terrace, patio, courtyard, balcony or roof terrace will look and feel incomplete without container-grown plants.

  • Container plants enhance entrances to buildings or gated entrances to courtyards.

  • The portable nature of outdoor planters makes them easy to rearrange as often as one likes to create new visual effects.

  • Cultivating a plant in a pot makes one more aware of it's colours, fragrance, texture, shape and proportion. Container gardening awakes the senses.

  • Potted plants are easy and fun to maintain. The most drought tolerant plants can be left for long periods without any watering while the more drought sensitive need a soaking once in a while. Occasionally add some fertilisers. Prune if needed.
