Plant pots and plant containers are an integral part of most gardens, patios and terraces. When choosing containers for planting, always make sure that they have drainage holes – otherwise there is a risk that the roots will rot.
Containers are an excellent way to grow shrubs, flowers and herbs if you don’t have a large space or you struggle to reach ground level. Container grown plants can be used to brighten patios, decking, doorsteps, balconies and in the flower border to create height. Lightweight containers are the best choice for balconies. Use terracotta sparingly if there’s a weight limit on your balcony as it tends to weigh more than other materials.
Containers are excellent for plants that need specific growing conditions such as ericaceous (acid based) soil for rhododendrons and azaleas. Tender, heat loving plants can be moved around the garden into sun pockets as the year progresses. Growing semi-hardy plants in a pot means that you can bring the plant indoors for overwintering.
You also need to remember that plants in pots do need careful watering as they tend to dry out faster than plants in the ground, particularly in the summer. So, be sure to regularly water and feed container grown plants even if it rains.
