Container gardening expert Melissa King shows you how to create a beautiful, easy-care hanging display in a self-watering pot.

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • 1 x Northcote Pottery Villa Plastic Hanging Black Terrazzo Self Watering pot
  • 1 x bag of quality potting mix
  • 1 x Sedum ‘Cape ‘Blanco’
  • 1 x Purple-tinged groundcover Sedum 
  • 1 x Arenaria ‘Summer White’

This trio works beautifully together and showcases a mix of contrasting foliage and classic white flowers. Start by planting a ground cover Sedum with pretty purple tinged foliage in one third of the pot. Then add a touch of contrasting silver foliage with Sedum ‘Cape Blanco’. Finally, introduce a splash of flowering colour with Arenaria ‘Summer White’, which displays masses of blooms through spring and summer.

Tip: Position your hanging pot in a bright, covered area for a beautiful, low maintenance potted display that waters itself.
