Bamboo and sedge pot display

Overview

Some pots cry out for a simple planting scheme that doesn't detract from their own beauty, for which this arrangement is perfect. The bamboo combines beautifully with the dark brown-bronze leaves of the red hook sedge to form a sleek display that would look great in any garden all year round.
Plant it: spring or autumn
At its best: All year round
Takes just: 20 minutes

How to do it:

1Plant the bamboo as the centrepiece of this display and arrange the sedge around its base to form a gentle, soft carpet. Make sure you position the pot in a sheltered spot to avoid cold winds damaging the plants.


Adam's tip

Both plants enjoy moist conditions, so water the container regularly.
Scatter large black pebbles on top of the compost - they not only look smart, but they also help to keep the plants' roots cool and moist.
