Contain Your Excitement

For small courtyard gardens, patios or indeed anywhere where it’s not possible to have a conventional garden, containers are invaluable.

These containers outside the back door have been planted with a collection of perennials, annuals and grasses. They’ll last until late autumn, when the annuals will be replaced with spring bedding and bulbs.

Containers are easy to care for but watering is a must as they are prone to drying put quickly in the summer months especially.
