Pot & Containers

The Potted garden can be used for many different circumstances. They can give life to a high-rise building or flat with nothing but a balcony or add some colour to the patio. They can provide fragrance by the front door or add a touch of class to a small courtyard with some large pots. They’re used indoors at the home or office, in window boxes, hanging baskets and aquariums.

Maintenance

Plants in pots and containers rely on you to give them everything they need as their roots can’t reach to get it themselves. Outdoor potted plants will require regular watering in summer and protection from cold. Indoor require regular attention, particularly if you have heating and cooling on regularly. See our Indoor category for more details.
