Plants for Patio pots and containers

There is a huge variety of patio plants that can be grown in containers, from annuals to flower bulbs - and even vegetable plants. When deciding on which patio plants to grow, think about what kind of maintenance you’d be prepared to put in, whether you’d like to grow plants for their scent, and what kind of garden style you’re contributing to. 

Also think about where your patio is situated, particularly in regards to the amount of sunlight it gets during the day, and whether it’s sheltered or exposed to high winds. If you’re limited on space, know that certain patio plants can be grown in small containers to be placed on tables or other surfaces in your patio area, or even planted in hanging baskets or window boxes. These are very versatile plants!

How to plant a patio container

  1. Choose your pot. Different pot materials have different qualities. For example, terracotta plant pots are sturdy and can hold up in strong winds, but can wick moisture from the soil, meaning you’ll have to water your plants more. Also, you should ensure that your pot has adequate drainage to avoid waterlogging the roots of your plants. If the pot has a single drainage hole, you may want to add a layer of crocks at the bottom of the pot to stop the hole from getting blocked with compost.
  2. Fill your pot with fresh, multi-purpose compost for flower plants and bulbs, or use a soil-based compost for long-term plants such as ornamental trees and small shrubs.
  3. Plant your patio plants and leave a 2cm gap between the top of the compost and the rim of the pot. Firm the compost with your hands to get rid of air holes, then fill in the gaps.
  4. Water well, and maintain your plant to its individual specifications.
