Accessorising THE GARDEN

Containers overflowing with flowers are the horticultural equivalent of scatter cushions. Move them around the garden to add colour, change a colour scheme, brighten a dull area or act as a focal point. The secrets to beautiful plant-filled pots are simple:

Give sun-loving plants enough sun to bring out the flowers, and tender-leafed plants dappled or afternoon shade so they don’t burn.

Regular watering will keep them looking good.

Feed with a liquid fertiliser once or twice a month.

Don’t forget to trim regularly to keep them in shape.
