Our Pots and Containers in Autumn and Winter

We change many of our containers and pots as the seasons change, so recently we replanted several large terracotta pots and various larger containers ready for late autumn and winter interest.

We planted the pots with small foliage shrubs, small grasses and winter flowering cyclamen in shades or red, purple and cerise.

These clay pots have been displayed on the area of garden which my aeoniums and other succulent collection lived in throughout the warmer months.

At the entrance to our drive we have three planter boxes to welcome anyone as they arrive, the first one says ‘Malc and Jude’s Patch’, the middle one is plain, and the other says ‘Avocet 3 Main Road’.

Alongside the house itself leading to the front door we have more containers, the largest being a vintage galvanised bath. This is planted with foliage plants, grasses and winter cyclamen. Alongside the front door steps are several clay pots including two tall, wide terracotta pots with more winter interest plantings.

Around and about throughout our garden more winter interest pots can be found as we work in the garden or simply wander.

A retired primary school head teacher, I now spend much of my time gardening in our quarter acre plot in rural Shropshire south of Shrewsbury. I share my garden with Jude my wife a newly retired teacher , eight assorted chickens and a plethora of wildlife. Jude does all the heavy work as I have a damaged spine and right leg. We also garden on an allotment nearby. We are interested in all things related to gardens, green issues and wildlife.
