James,

Yes you can, but you will only have a display during the summer, as the nature of these plants is to die down in the winter.    Try some small evergreen shrubs, such as eunonymous or skimmia for winter colour, and add a few crocus, snowdrops, dwarf daffodils, etc., for spring colour.   There are some plants that like being grown in pots, such as agapanthus, patio roses, buzz budleias, etc.

Hope this helps.

I have bought this wire hanging unit from wilkinson so. Never seen one before. It is large and square not too much depth and has holes at front and sides. Is sempervivum a good for all round year display.
