    I keep hosta in pots. At one point of time I had over 25, now only a few left. Too many snails so I gave up on them and have started planting roses in those pots. 

    This is my favourite. Hosta June.

    Crop a bit to make the pics load upright.


    From back to front, left to right (ish) - Anagallis monellii  Skylover and a trailing lobelia, Hypericum androsaemum, Linaria vulgaris, lavender Hidcote, Campanula lactiflora Loddon Anna with Melissa officinalis (lemonbalm), Ilex aquifolium Argentea marginata, Salvia nemorosa Caradonna Pink Inspiration.


    The same corner from a different angle later in the year, with Potentilla nepalensis Miss Willmott. By August - when this was taken - it was a bit more of a tangle and less full of flowers.

    Narcissus 'Minnow', Tulipa 'Blue Heron' and a couple of Tulipa 'Muscadet'.

    I was rather unimpressed by these Upstar tulips as they started out neon yellow, but they have mellowed to the standard description. Quite a change over a few weeks. I thought I had perhaps mislabelled the pot. I suspect they will get more and more cream as they go.

    Ten days ago:

    Today. They've become almost like peonies. With a lovely scent. I'm not sure what of - kind of spring, hyacinths and caramel.

    With Apledoorn now by the door - it's supposed to be more or less perennial, which will be interesting to test out. Not the most interesting red, but still cheery.

    Tinka went for three weeks straight and is now going over.

    @BlueBirder Wow, that is a huge collection of plants in pots. I like the blue pot with the scabious.

    @Songbird-1 Those tulips are quite nice, I like double tulips and they seem to last a bit longer I find.

    @Fire thank you!

    @Fire lovely tulips. I’ve planted a lot of tulip last autumn and I’m going to leave them in the border to see which ones return.

    Great scabious. I'd like to plant some this year. Any recomms for short-ish ones, good for not huge pots?
