Starting to garden there are many great plants that can be grown in pots relatively inexpensively. Herbs generally come in 9cm pots from garden centres and can be used in cooking too.I like to make a herb pot with sage, thyme, marjoram and fennel planted at the back.These plants will eventually out grow the pot but the combination of foliage and flowers go well together for a season or two.If you want flower power,then when danger of frost is passed you can pick up boxed bedding busy lizzies which will flower their socks off until the frosts in the autumn.If you are looking for bigger shrubs then you can plant Skimmias or bay plants.Skimmia Rubella is often available as a small plant for window boxes and in time will grow into a neat dome with fragrant flowers in the spring.You can also sow seed in pots – I like sowing annuals Thompson and Morgan have a great selection of seeds many of them easy to grow,Nasturtiums always do quite well. Good luck!
