There is nothing like having a real designer range of pots and planters in your garden, home or office.

Traditionally produced with a beautiful look and feel, Mediterranean pots come from many Mediterranean traditions and transform any garden setting.

We have also found other large pots and planters essential in our design work.





Pots, planters and planting advice

What are you planning to plant?
It is the plant that chooses the pot or planter - why?

You need to give your plants plenty of root space.

'As above, so below' applies very well to plants in planters and pots -

However much of the plant grows above the pot, the plant needs similar volume below.

A 15-inch pot (38cm) has nearly twice the volume of a 12-inch (30cm) pot.

A 70 cm diameter planter has 150 litres of planting space, while a 120 cm diameter planter has 300 to 800 litres of space depending on its height.

Upgrade to larger pots and planter sizes every two or three years.

Use the old pots and planters to upgrade with a succession of sizes to ensure your pots and plants are always large enough for your plants.

Once the plant has reached its maximum planter size, 'retire' it to the garden, or a friend's garden.

Make sure the pot or planter has drainage if intended for outdoor use.

Mix plenty of gravel, grit or sand with peat to increase drainage.

Know the natural conditions for your plants, and their likes and dislikes.

Mediterranean shrubs for example will survive hot dry summers in pots and planters but hate cold and wet winters: they will survive cold spells much better if the roots have not been constantly rained on.

Protect plant roots in winter by putting your pots and planters under cover or put a rain shield over the exposed soil. Use fleece in extremely low temperatures to protect leaf and root extremities.

Citrus varieties grow well in this country if you follow the May-November rule (put out in May - take in in November). They can be stored in an unheated well-lit room. Citrus and bougainvillea will lose their leaves at low temperatures, but will grow them again the following year. Citrus guide. Bougainvillea guide.

Plant with Rootgrow mycorrhiza for early establishment and drought support.
