Planters can form a bridge between house and garden


Summertime  is the season when a terrace comes  into its own. Your patio  may be part  of a bigger garden, or a paved courtyard  may be all you have. Whatever  its surroundings, an area of brick or stone  paving,  gravel or decking can become a welcoming haven with carefully chosen  and cleverly planted  containers. As a general rule, the most  successful groupings  combine  one or two large
planters with various smaller planters. Too many little planters distract the eye and make for a disjointed effect. A big shrub or tree creates  a focus and is a good starting  point for a terrace design. They  also look good viewed from  inside on a winter's  day, whether  covered in pretty evergreen foliage  or with their bare branches outlined in frost. A sunny  terrace is a great place
for scented plants  -  the warmth  will enhance their scent and the blooms will attract  lazy humming  bees and bright butterflies. Herbs  do especially well in sunny corners  -  thyme, marjoram, rosemary and sage  have aromatic  leaves  that will scent the air if you brush  against them. Try  adding  a trellis to a planter and grow summer jasmine (Jasminum  officinale) up it.
Plants for your  Planters
To help you select the best plants for your planters. Here is a list of two hundred plants, with pictures,  for planters listed by colour & season

Planters can form a bridge between house and garden

The mock orange blossom (Philadelphus 'Beauclerk') emits a heady citrus scent in the early evening  while an even  richer fragrance is given off at twilight by the white trumpets  of the tobacco plant (Nicotiana alata).
You can achieve  a stylish look by choosing just one or two colours for your plantings or using  similar  planters. But don't be too strict -  a cool theme of blues, lilacs and mauves, a warm theme of reds, yellows and  oranges,  or a mix of the palest pastels and whites will all give a sense of unity. Bring sunlight to a  shady patio with greeny yellows, whites and glossy foliage planted in wooden  garden planters. Cool

corners can be enlivened with ferns and variegated ivies, and cheerful colours of busy lizzies, which thrive in shade.
One of the prettiest as well as most rewarding patio plants is the tomato, and it is easy to raise in a planter. You could also grow a tangle of runner beans  and sweet peas up an obelisk or a wigwam of canes set in a planter, in a sunny corner. If you have  enough space,  a dwarf fruit tree in a planter add structure as well as giving you an autumn  treat.
One  of the best  things about planters  is that they are not static.  If one plant looks miserable,
change it for another  that is bursting with health; as an arrangement passes its best, hide it behind another that is starting to bloom. Move the planters to suit your mood, the occasion and  to maintain maximum year round interest.
 A  sheltered patio also makes a good summer home for planter grown conservatory specimens and house plants.  Abutilons, agapanthus, citrus trees, cordylines, tender fuchsias and geraniums, olive trees, most palms and tree ferns will provide an exotic contrast to hardier plants that surround them.
