Place a few crocks at the bottom of the container, to cover the drainage hole.

Fill the pot two-thirds full with compost.

Plant the salvia in the centre, making sure its level and at the correct depth. Firm in well.

Plant the pelargonium, plectranthus and euphorbias around the salvia. Fill in any gaps with compost and firm in well. Water the pot thoroughly and allow to drain before moving to its final position.

Deadhead the pelargonium regularly to keep things tidy and encourage more flowers to come. Boost the display with a weekly liquid feed – this will make all the difference to the overall performance of the plants.
