in : Pots & containers: Summer
In this pretty container display we've combined the foliage loveliness of Pelargonium 'Frank Headley' with Senecio cineraria 'Silver Dust', which contrasts beautifully with the dark-leaved sedge and ipomoea. Throughout summer, the pelargonium will flower its socks off, providing further colourful contrasts, while the ipomoeas will trail gently over the sides.
Add crocks to cover the drainage hole and fill two-thirds with compost. Plant the cineraria in the centre and the pelargoniums on wither side of it. Tuck in the sedge and ipomoeas around the edge. Top up with compost and water thoroughly.
Deadhead spent pelargoinium flowers to prolong the season of colour.

Where can I get a metal cage such as Dianthus etc plants are in with the stones?

I too would like to know where to find such container: several Google searches led me nowhere.

I too am looking for the pebble gabions, has anyone had any luck?
