selection of plants, combining different leaf forms, colours and textures. The Nandina domestica makes an an eye-catching centrepiece all year round, with attractive flowers and berries, and fantastic autumn colour.
1Place upturned pots in the base of the pot to aid drainage and minimise the amount of compost used in the pot.
2Pour the compost into the container until it's about two-thirds full.
3Add horticultural grit to the pot to aid drainage and root penetration. Mix it thoroughly into the compost.
4Tease out the roots of the Nandina domestica and plant it in the centre of the pot.
5Fill the container with plants, adding one to each corner. Let the foliage trail over the sides.
6Fill any gaps between the plants with more compost, firm down gently and water well.
