Planting combinations

If you have just found an old galvanized bucket, a stone sink or milk pail or another exciting container and want to use it in your English Garden - here are some planting combinations that will help you create an English Garden feel.

Just make sure your container has good drainage holes (there are very few plants that enjoy having permanent soggy roots) and put in some good compost.
Adding a handful of slow release fertilizer is a good idea as this will feed your plants throughout the season.

Planting combinations.

Containers look good grouped together and try to get different sizes of containers for maximum interest.
When placing a group of pots put the bigger ones at the back and make sure you can get to them for watering and deadheading.

Enjoy your plants
