Great plants for pots

I often try out plants in pots on my deck, to see how they go at close quarters. This is a nice way to get a bit of seasonal variety and to try out planting combinations - but they often outgrow their pot after a year or so and need to be planted out in the garden.

 

Here are some trusted plants that endure & we use long term in pots ......
