Immediately I read the word ‘container‘ I think of plants – in pots. As someone who only has a container ‘garden‘ I am always on the lookout for ways in which to grow such plants and the type of containers used. A glasshouse, is of course, a container too since its job is to contain plants that otherwise would not survive outdoors.
Old Terracotta Pots are my favourite
and in some gardens you find ornate urns which would suit the style of my home, but sadly they are too big
Plastic pots and seed trays are invaluable to the gardener
and sometimes people use the most unusual containers
or what about this lion-guarded bowl of thyme in the Herb Garden at Sissinghurst Castle Garden?

Garden containers! Of course! Why didn’t I think of that? Lovely photos.
Yours was more amusing though 😉
Tks. Tanks. Tanks! Hahaha! Containers!
so pretty- love them!
Thank you 🙂
Such beautiful containers and flowers Jude. Wonderful collection.
Thanks Sue – I can never resist flower pots 😉
A beautiful collections of planters Jude! The lion guarded herb garden is my pick, although I am a huge fan of terracotta urns too 🙂
Oh to have a garden big enough to accommodate both!
Great take on containers…I love terracotta pots. My immediate thought was to photo the containers in my garden. You have found a fabulous selection.
Ha, I’d already done that on my other blog (flowers) so I needed a new take. I did think of other containers, but kept coming back to pots. Glad you like them Ronnie 🙂
Excellent response! I’m a sucker for the little green wheelbarrow Jude!
Cute eh? And to fill it with tall gladioli is different. I have seen barrows with geraniums etc. but this one is quite quirky 🙂
