This is a whole corner of the garden, with the feeling of what’s in the pot spilling over into the bed around it, a lovely Vita Sackville-West technique that knits together different layers of the garden. This collection includes perennials, both tender and hardy, to guarantee great length of flowering.
Bring the pot in under cover before the first frosts and it will repeat from one year to the next. We have the Athamanta and toadflax in the border, where the pot can nestle once the frosts are done in spring.This collection contains 5 plants each of:
- x Petchoa hybrida 'BeautiCal French Vanilla'
- Salvia greggii 'Mirage Cream'
Deadhead to prolong the flowering period. These will work well in a container pot in a sunny position. Water well in the first two weeks, to prevent the plant from drying out. Apply liquid fertiliser fortnightly to improve performance.
