A Super Summer Container 

A sensational summer container can be put together now to last throughout the summer months

and it couldn’t be easier to achieve…

Take a container of your choice and place broken polystyrene pieces in the bottom to help with drainage (a couple of inches deep). Fill with container compost leaving an inch below the rim.

Choose a zonal geranium and plant in the centre of the container. Next take 8 trailing plants and place one in each corner and the gaps in between. A combination of 2 x bacopa, 2 x surfinia, 2 x million bells and 2 x verbena would look beautiful together.

Any remaining gaps can be filled with a selection of bedding begonias. Water your container and place in a position to be enjoyed!
