In this No Fuss video guide, Kevin Smith shows how to plant up a terracotta pot that is packed with late-summer colour. He explains which compost to use and selects a range of perennials that will have a life in the garden once the pot is past its best, including echinacea, diascia and heuchera. He also highlights the importance of deadheading and watering to prolong the display.
