Containers

DSCF0723

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?

I have lived in the UK for most of my life, but when young I definitely had wanderlust and even ended up living in South Africa for several years which was a wonderful experience. I now look forward to a long and leisurely retirement doing what I like most - gardening, photography, walking and travelling.

  1. A beautiful collections of planters Jude! The lion guarded herb garden is my pick, although I am a huge fan of terracotta urns too 🙂

    1. 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 🙂

    1. Cute eh? And to fill it with tall gladioli is different. I have seen barrows with geraniums etc. but this one is quite quirky 🙂
