Dig It! Pep up pots and containers (26 September 2016)

Dig It! // Gardening & Green Spaces// WRS // Sept. 28, 2016

Autumn is bowling along apace, with warm days and buzzing bees and lots of colour in the parks and gardens. If your pots and containers are looking a bit tired, you can pep them up a bit with some autumn colour. Sedums and grasses are both low-maintenance and provide months of interest. If you would like something out of the usual gold and red tones of the autumn, then perhaps a Perovskia, or Russian Sage, might do the trick. The new Perovskia on the block is super-compact but packed with flowers, and it's called "Denim and Lace." Gray Gruber, of Cultivaris, the plant development company, tells us more.
