Hide an ugly fence or wall with a series of hanging pots filled with colour or herbs. More inspiring ideas @ | The Micro Gardener

Herbs like rosemary, lemon grass & garlic chives can feature as the star attraction in large pots. They provide a fragrant entry feature with seasonal flowers + access to the kitchen for quick meal additions and herb teas. Partner with a cascading plant like variegated mother of herbs, sweet potato vine or licorice vine. Regular 'haircuts' will help shape your herbs into a beautiful edible planter.

Purple in Pots: The Thriller, Filler & Spiller formula works every time. Repeat silver green & purple foliage with a variety of plants to create the WOW factor. The same coloured pots in different shapes & sizes harmonizes the collection & provides a beautiful contrast. Staggered vertical planting is a clever design trick. Purple edibles include cabbages/kale + grey green foliage like leeks & spring onions + oregano & thyme as trailers. More tips @

For gorgeous containers, use the Thriller/Spiller/Filler method. Choose a taller plant as your thriller, a filler to add around the base and a trailing plant to spill or cascade down the sides. More container garden tips @ | The Micro Gardener
