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


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


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


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


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


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