This pretty container display is a herald of summer, with its delicate blooms radiating a cottage-garden vibe.
The colour palette is simple, giving the whole display a coordinated feel, while the lavender emits a beautiful fragrance, and is attractive to bees, butterflies and other beneficial insects. Position the nicotiana and verbena at the front of the pot, using the lavender to form the backbone of the display.

Fill the pot two-thirds full with multi-purpose compost and mix in slow-release fertiliser.

Water the container well, making sure the compost doesn’t dry out. Deadhead blooms as they fade.
