Suitable for All AbilitiesMost people with even the tiniest outdoor space of their own end up planting a few containers, but often the results are disappointing and the plantings end up becoming neglected. Even experienced gardeners can feel stumped for ideas to make their pots more interesting. This course aims to help enthusiastic gardeners to look afresh at the way they use containers and give them the inspiration they need to create displays which really earn their keep within any garden, large or small, looking good for a long time and providing the cherry on top of the gardening cake.
You will be encouraged to think about your objectives in creating a container display of any size, and given guidance on the principles and practice of establishing healthy plants in well-positioned pots, combining them effectively and caring for them. There will be hints and tips for filling your pots generously with plants without necessarily spending a fortune and we will discuss choosing plants for different sites and at different seasons. There will be plenty of examples to sow the seeds of planting ideas in your mind, whether for single pots, groups or more ambitious large displays.
This course will help you to use containers with confidence and to develop an adventurous and colourful palette of plants in order to bring variety and enjoyment to your garden.
