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.
