What to plant? Well, the choice here really is infinite. Almost any plant, be it flower, tree, shrub, herb vegetable or fruit, can be successfully grown in a container. Generally speaking, however, you’ll want to plant out the smaller – or “Dwarf” – cultivars for whatever plant you intend to grow, as these are best suited to container growing. As well as employing the “thriller, spiller, filler” rule (see above) it’s also a good idea to include a good mix of habits (trailing and upright) as well as flowers, shrubs and small trees. Considerations about sunlight are also important, so make sure plants which require more sunlight are not dominated by shade.
