In this Gardeners’ World programme clip, Monty Don explains how to plan a display for a large container. He shows how to prevent waterlogging and uses crocks at the base of the container to avoid wasting compost. He then shares his recommendation for a potting compost mix and offers tips on creating interest with varying plant heights.
The plants Monty uses in his display are red-flowered Canna ‘Australia’, vivid Dahlia ‘Grenadier’, petunia varieties ‘Black Velvet’ and ‘Surfinia Burgundy’ and cheery Osteospermum ‘Voltage Yellow’. Watch now to discover how to create a dramatic container display of your own.
