Be inspired by small gardens, like in the UK where everything is grown in pots.
In some instances, different pots are grouped together to form a collection. In others, identical pots have been positioned symmetrically for a more formal look.
You can have yesterday-today-and-tomorrow, snowball bush, a beautiful Japanese maple (Acer ‘Bloodgood’), as well as many other treasures in pots.
If you like strong colours, use a lot of red, shocking pink, purple and a touch of blue. Occasionally add orange for a spark.
Here, foxgloves grow happily alongside potted ficus topiaries.
