English Garden Pots Jigsaw Puzzle

Hints for the jigsaw: the piece will 'snap' into place when you have it in the right spot. Click 'change cut' to increase the number of pieces, or change the shape of the pieces: either will make it more challenging.





Here are some tips for using pots in your English garden
Place the larger pots at the back with the smallest at the front. If you have room for several pots then try grouping them in a semi-circle for best effect. Use odd numbers of pots (5, 7, or 9) for the most pleasing effect.

  • Place your chosen pots in your space before you plant them to see the best possible combinations – move them around until you're happy with the scene. Then you don't have to lift the pots when they're full of soil which makes them heavier.

  • To make the group look as if they have been there for years and look good all year round use at least one evergreen shrub (as large as you can manage) perhaps a myrtle or skimma. Use a holly, privet, yew or boxus sempervirens if you want a clipped shape.


    Here are some suggestions for plants for pots that will get half a day’s sun and all are easy to grow.
