If you are like many Aussies and love growing plants in pots, then stay tuned for Colin’s top tips to create your own potted paradise on your patio or courtyard at home. Plants can be a little like people, sometimes they work well together and other times they can clash. So, today Colin is going show you some creative planting combinations to add a little finesse to your garden.
Clematis look gorgeous and can make an ideal centrepiece or focal point for a large pot. Just add a frame for climbing and then team them with some perennials in complimentary colours like day lilies, lilies, Pelargoniums or silver leaved Jacobaea to shade the roots and they will provide a showstopping display.
For filling up the ceramic pot Colin is using Richgro Black Marvel Potting Mix because it has been developed through extensive trialling to encourage abundant flowers, lush green healthy growth and strong roots. The premium mix has been developed by experts and is boosted with potash and iron to feed your plants for up to 6 months.
Alternatively, you can use the mix to pot up your plants into a lightweight pot and then place them into a good looking ‘Show pot’ for a classy display and instant change or pop of colour all year round. So, all that is left is for you to choose is what plants to use in your pots at home. Richgro Black Marvel potting mix is available at Bunnings stores throughout Australia and if you want to find out more go to richgro.com.au
