Container plants

Growing your plants in containers opens up a whole new world in which you can experiment with different combinations, ring the changes or totally overhaul your planting at the drop of a hat. A huge variety of plants from our garden centre grow happily in containers, giving you potted colour from January to December.

Spring: Tulips arrive in our garden centre from autumn: pack shoulder-to-shoulder into large containers for a cracking display. Other spring bulbs to try in pots include crocuses, daffodils and snowdrops.

Summer: Fill your containers to overflowing with dazzling bedding plants - in our garden centre from spring onwards. Container-grown veg are a great option when space is limited: we stock plug plants to make planting even more straightforward.

Autumn: Many shrubs look beautiful framed in a large container and many have spectacular autumn displays. In our garden centre look out for graceful deep purple acers, brilliantly berried skimmia and pretty variegated hollies.

Winter: Combine heathers chosen from the range in our garden centre with white-berried gaultherias or red-twigged dogwood and the large, leathery evergreen leaves of bergenia for winter cheer just outside your door.

Please ask the staff in our garden centre in Cornamagh for more information and advice about plants for containers.
