The wonderful thing about growing plants in containers is the flexibility that it brings, such as choosing the perfect size to fit your space and being able to change their position throughout the year. Container plants are brilliant for brightening up a dark corner, adding colour and interest to a patio or even as a centre piece to a larger display. There is a wide variety of container plants available all year round, which are easy to look after, what’s more they don’t require the need for heavy gardening equipment and all the while keep those pesky pests at bay!

With summer just around the corner, I’m on a mission to prove that everyone can have beautiful potted plants no matter the size of their garden. So each week I will be posting the progress of my own potted plants to show you just how easy it is to introduce fabulous plants into your garden.
