This stylish santolinastipa and osteospermum pot is full of texture and movement, and has a refreshing seaside feel.

The cheery daisy flowers are perfect for heralding in summer, while the foliage of the grass and cotton lavender add interest at the front and back of the display. A pebble mulch smartens things up and adds to the seaside look – and it’s a simple way to get a designer finish. Santolina, osteospermums and stipa adore the sun, so give them a bright spot and the container should last well into autumn. If you’re gardening in especially windy conditions, here are 10 plants that will flourish in these conditions.
