Most of the pots in the Apta range are guaranteed against frost damage for 10 years.

I had some vouchers for a big birthday and bought a big square terracotta pot for my fig from this range

keep scrolling - the terracotta ones are near the end - I got it from Notcutts in their sale and with my Sage card on a double discount day, think it worked out at around £40 - 50 ish.

Winter flowering jasmine is the yellow one - like little yellow stars   We have a feral one breaking into flower at the moment.

As you say, lovely to see at this time of the year.

Hi Madeleine - I've just 'watched again' and I don't think they were plastic - think they were terracotta

Lots available out there, at all sorts of prices depending on how frost-resistent they are.  I can't afford hundreds of pounds so I buy the cheaper ones knowing that if the weather gets very cold indeed I'll either have to bubble wrap them or risk them crumbling/cracking.  Putting them up on little feet will help to guard against that happening.
