They grow well in pots. Overwinter in a cold greenhouse, they will lose their foliage but  it will come back, they can also be pruned every year to keep them in check. Mine are 10 years old and always put on a good show

Looks lovely. Stored bird food in mine and it was attacked by squirrels with holes gnawed through the wood walls and rats came up through the floor.

Confessions of the plantaholics

Posted: 07/07/2015 at 10:32

It rained heavily sunday so I volunteered to do the shopping at Tescos.

one of my favourite planterys a short detour on the way home.

my banana plant did not survive winter hence the justification for its purchase,

a shady bed with bare patches, where Epimediums grow in spring needed two hostas,

my canna Lily was lonely, so five more purchased, one of each variety, it's so hard to make a decision when there is a choice.

two ginger Lily's to go with the cannas 

And finally two arum lilies.

spent more on plants than on food.

i am not a plantaholic.
