We have been looking at ideas for beautiful hardy pots to provide us with all year round interest and colour colour
Pots as I mentioned earlier are an excellent opportunity to enjoy plants that may not otherwise suvive in the soil in your borders. Plants such as rhododendrons, azalias or pieris.
Small collections of coloured evergreen can look very appealing .Placed in a collection together. They can often make a very dramatic display. I throughly recomend including Daphne odora 'Marginata' and sarcococca because as well as being good evergreens they smell delicious. I want the fragrance to lift me up every time I pass up my front path.
This pot is dominated by a small silver leaved pittosporum and under planted with a variety of small silver euonymus and frosted red leaved heucheras.
