    @pitter-patter, I love this grass and it's diaphanous flowering stems, but found that wherever I tried it the anemanthele would cascade out over the grass and I had to hold it back with canes while I mowed. Or the flowering stems would catch in the mower......
    So when I bought this large pot I planted a young self-sown anemanthele. It's in a plastic pot inside the big one so that I can keep swapping for young plants. Now it can cascade to its hearts content. Well, that's the plan!
    I'm hoping to put white bacopa round the edge for summer. Just hope that won't disturb the anemones. I've not grown any in pots before, but have them on border edges.

    You may yet find seedlings of the anemanthele to pot up if it flowered for you. The young plants seem much nicer to my eye, a better colour. The older they get the more old foliage they retain.

    @Garden Gnomess, I really like the orange with the blue there.

    @Marlorena, I bought and potted a French lavender last year, not expecting it to survive the winter but happy to treat it as a sort of bedding plant.
    I was right, it didn't, but I'll look for 'Helmsdale' this year, it's a richer colour.

    @Woodgreen You can try sowing some annuals directly into the pot: nasturtiums, California poppies etc. I shall be on a lookout for self seeded anemanthele.

    @Garden gnomess I love those blue pansies/violas, they add a nice cool contrast to the display.

    @Marlorena That’s a great euphorbia. I’ve admired it before in your photos, especially when it displayed those fiery colours.

    @Fire My potted tulips are very late this year. It’s strange that the crocuses haven’t come up this year, they’re usually very reliable.
