Colourful Cottage Garden Look

Potted Combo of the Month


10 SEP 2025

This month’s potted combo is a modern cottage garden look, with a colourful twist.

Here’s what you’ll need:

1 x Northcote Pottery Glazed Jardin Planter
1 x bag of Premium Potting mix
1 x Leucadendron ‘Purple Haze’
1 x Compact flowering daisy
1 x Convolvulus cneorum
1 x Candytuft
1 x Carex ‘Frosted Curls’

Northcote Pottery’s Glazed Jardin Planter is such a happy pot that it screams out for a happy collection of plants.

Fill the pot with quality potting mix. Then position Leucadendron ‘Purple Haze’ towards the back of the container. Frame ‘Purple Haze’ on both sides with compact flowering daisies and Convolvulus, then soften the base of the Leucadendron with silvery ‘Carex ‘Frosted Curls’. Finish it all off with beautiful white flowering candytuft.

Tip: For a splash of seasonal colour, try filling our glazed Jardin planter with sunny yellow flowers like marigolds, snapdragons or portulacas that provide a spectacular display throughout the warmer months.

Happy Container Gardening!
