An orange and blue planted container

It’s not just annuals which work in tubs, you can also mix them with shrubs for all year interest. Here’s an idea for a stunning blue and orange arrangement using Cornus sanguinea ‘Midwinter Fire’, Erysimum Apricot Delight and blue pansies in a traditional terracotta pot. Images from GAP Photos.

1. Use ‘crocks’ in the base of the pot to aid drainage

2. Water plants well before placing on fresh soil. Plant at existing level.

3. Balance out colour and shape around the pot. Use taller plants for height.

4. Instant colour!
