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

or what about this lion-guarded bowl of thyme in the Herb Garden at Sissinghurst Castle Garden?
