Place a layer of broken polystyrene or crocks in the base of the pot. This will aid drainage and reduce the volume of compost in the pot.
Add compost until the pot is two-thirds full. Push your fingers into the compost or gently knock the pot to remove air pockets.
Sprinkle slow-release fertiliser over the compost, to keep the display looking good for as long as possible.
Place the tallest plants at the back of the pot and the shorter plants at the front. Add more compost around the plants and firm gently.
