|At its best
Perfect for a shady corner, this pretty container display is simple to recreate. Here, we've combined bronze-green heuchera with common blue violets. The trailing ivies hang from the side of the container to complete the look.
You Will Need
- Heuchera 'Electra' (2)
- Common blue violet, Viola sororia (2)
- Ivy plants (2)
- Large, shallow container
- Multi-purpose, peat-free compost
- Slow-release fertiliser
Total time: 30 minutes
Put a layer of crocks in the bottom of the container, to stop compost falling out of the drainage holes.
Fill the container two-thirds full with compost.
Add slow-release fertiliser granules to the surface of the compost, and mix them in with your hands.

Plant the heucheras first, then the violas. Add more compost around the plants and firm in well. Water plants thoroughly and allow to drain before moving the container to its final position.
