This month’s potted combo is modern cottage garden meets grassy meadow.
Here’s what you’ll need:
- Northcote Pottery’s Chambers U-pot in Sea White Terrazzo
- Phormium ‘Anna Red’
- Leucanthemum ‘African Eyes’
- Carex flagellifera
- Carex ‘Frosted Curls’
- Campanula ‘Birch Hybrid’
This is a classic ‘Thrill, Fill and Spill’ combo, so position Phormium ‘Anna Red’ towards the back of the pot for a bit of height and drama. Then plant Leucanthemum ‘African Eyes’ at the base. The silver foliage is a beautiful contrast to the red Phormium. Soften the composition with ornamental grasses like Carex flagellifera and ‘Frosted Curls’. Then finish it all off with the beautiful Campanula ‘Birch Hydrid’.
Tip: If you’re working with big pots, choose more than one Thrill, Fill and Spill plant, so that you can fill out your container beautifully.
