Let it go to pots!
In order to get the most out of limited resources – whether that is space, cash, water, enthusiasm or physical ability – why not consider gardening entirely in pots? It's an obvious, though underrated, solution if you're short on space, short on water or in temporary accommodation. It is even a great way to deal with a normal suburban garden in those seasons that are short on flowers. In any of the above circumstances, a few pots containing plants in full bloom can make a huge impact in the garden. Their power is far greater than the same number of plants planted directly into the garden, as the plants are raised higher than their surrounds, and 'framed' in a way only pots can do – they are quite literally put on a pedestal. The effect can be truly incredible, making an otherwise green, flowerless garden begin to sing.
