It sounds like you are really getting into your gardening, but be warned - it is addictive and there is no known cure
Growing in pots is more labour intensive than having a border, but it's also much more versatile. Don't like where something is located? Just lift and shift with no digging.
I've got a mix. I do have 2 long borders, but also masses of pots and other containers on the patio and in front of the house. All the containers on the patio are attached to a watering system, but I have to water the one's out the front by hand. Not a problem - as you say it can be theraputic. When holidays come along I shift the pots to the back and add them to the watering system.
