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.
