On a first floor roof in very tall pots

Sorry I forgot to say that the pots are going to be bolted to the roof to ensure that they cannot fall over and will have  a gap underneath for drainage,

On a first floor roof in very tall pots

Posted: 07/02/2017 at 16:59

Please can I have some suggestions to put in my tall 1m high 40cm x 40cm black pots which are to go on the flat 1st floor roof which I can see from my bedroom. They will have a drip system but I cannot access the roof a lot, only about twice or 3 times a year so cannot dead head regularly. I would like them to look good all year round and have impact as they are going at the end of the flat roof which is about 3m away from my window. I would however like some flowers rather than just filling them with box balls or bamboo. In addition I would like part of it to be quite tall so nobody can see into my window.

Viburnum dawn

I would pot it on as a rabbit or deer could take a liking to it, but it is fully hardy and a shade lover so leave it outside under a tree say. I does like a bit of moisture as it grows very well on my solid clay.

What is your weather like? (2)

Posted: 14/10/2016 at 23:40

Weather was lovely here in North Dorset though hope to get some rain soon as it has not rained for weeks and even established shrubs are struggling and all my barrels are running towards empty. I also cannot plant any bulbs as the ground is rock solid. It is more like August here rather than October.

Cornus sanguinea 'Midwinter fire'

I bought 16 almost plug plant size ass otherwise 16 would have been expensive. Planted them 15 years ago and only pruned once when they had got very tall. I have never had a problem with them except that they layer themselves so always have plants to give away. I assume that as I can grow them easily that they love heavy and composted bark as I top up the composted bark every year. So I would say to all those having a problem to be patient. It took about 5 years for my plug plants to get to 1m tall.
