A new idea for patio planters.....
A new idea for patio planters.....

I planted up this terracotta bowl last year with Sempervivums, left it outdoors all winter and here it is looking lovely on my patio table!!! Sempervivums are great for growing in containers as it brings them nearer to eye-level so they can be more easily admired. It also means that they donít have to compete with other more vigorous plants in the border and as the fertiliser in the compost starts to run out so their leaves become even more colourful. If you forget to water them, they donít really mind (within reason!) and if the winter weather turns too extreme, you can pick the pot up and put it in a glasshouse or in the lee of a wall or fence for protection.
Delosperma, Sedum and Lampranthus are more plants which would go well in pots on the patio.
Sempervivums, Sedums and other succulents may also be planted between paving stones and on green roofs.

The majority of our plants are grown in 7cm square pots but we are gradually introducing larger, more mature plants in 13cm pots for those who want a more instant garden.As a general rule, if a plant is £2.50 or £3.00, it'll be in a 7cm pot and if it's £4.75 or £4.95 it'll be a larger 13cm.

Other plants such as Cyclamen are grown in 9cm pots. See individual pages for more details
