Container-friendly plants to transform your garden this summer
by Colour Your LifeWrite about what you know is one of the best pieces of advice ever given to novice scribblers and I am putting it into practice right now! As I sit in my garden with a summer breeze playing through the leaves of the cherry tree, I am surrounded by flowering plants and beautiful foliage. There are bees busy among the scabious and the catmint (just as the garden centre promised they would), the fuchsias and lilies are coming into flower and my big container of white marguerite daisies is simply stunning. Beyond the container grown glories, in the borders the lavatera will shortly explode into colour and there are roses everywhere. To balance the flowers there is the foliage of Photinia ‘Red Robin’ and hornbeam hedging, with its wonderful ribbed leaves.
