A glossary of what is growing in my Potted Garden – a work in progress

Annuals

I favour the easy to grow seeds with one or two challenges + the ubiquitous bedding plant stock

Biennials

Foxgloves are irresistible and I can hardly wait to see what colours the next year brings

Bulbs & Corms

Cyclamen, Muscari and Narcissi do well in pots and dahlias follow on in summer

Perennials

Most of my plants seem to be herbaceous perennials. Salvias and Hostas feature though there are several season fillers too

Shrubs

There’s the herb potagerie, fuschias, hydrangeas & a couple of favourite roses + evergreens euonymus & sarcococcas

Trees

Three Acers bought years ago – doing well in pots & one day I might have a garden to plant them
