Embracing the rich, earthy tones of autumn, this eye-catching container display is just the thing to brighten your patio or doorstep.
The cheery chrysanthemum adds plenty of colour at the front of the display, while the foliage provides interest and movement towards the back. Deadhead the flowers as they fade to keep things looking fresh, and move the carex and the heuchera to the garden when the pot begins to look tired.
Take a look at all of our pot and container ideas for more autumn inspiration.
Follow our simple steps to create this autumn chrysanthemum pot, below.
You Will Need
- Multi-purpose, peat-free compost
- Slow-release fertiliser
- Heuchera (2)
- Carex comans, bronze-leaves (2)
Fill a large container two-thirds full of multi-purpose compost. Mix in a measure of slow-release fertiliser.
Add the plants one at a time, teasing out the roots of each as you go. Fill any gaps with more compost.
Move your chrysanthemum autumn pot to its final position and water in well. Make sure it doesn’t dry out in dry or windy spells.
