Container plants for small spaces at Allington Plants & Garden Shop from Wiltshire

Container plants are ideal if space is tight in the garden. Many of the shrubs we're used to thinking of as enormous specimens suitable only for large gardens now come in dwarf varieties: in your Wiltshire garden centre you'll find container plant stars like the new Buddleja 'Buzz' series, compact 'yak' (yakushimanum) rhododendrons and even fruit trees bred to produce prolific crops in a roomy pot.

Designing with container plants from Allington Plants & Garden Shop

Plants grown in containers are invaluable for adding a little designer style to your garden, too. Use container plants as focal points tumbling over a handsome urn or terracotta bowl at the end of a path, perhaps. Clematis also make a lovely feature grown as container plants and clambering up a wigwam in the centre of a potager.

For a formal look, try repeating the same container plant in matching pots down a flight of steps; or mix contrasting perennials together in the same container for gorgeous planting combinations for every season. Pop down to the garden centre here in Chippenham and see what's in flower – you can try out different combinations right here on the benches!

Keep your container plants happy with garden accessories from Allington Plants & Garden Shop

Container plants are fully dependent on you for food and water, so give yourself a head start and lighten the workload with some of the clever ideas from the garden centre shelves here at Allington Plants & Garden Shop in Chippenham. Add a handful or two of water-retaining gel and it'll hold on to moisture, releasing it gradually as your plants need it and cutting down on watering. Stir in slow-release fertiliser granules while you're at it and your container plants are fed, too: you'll also find easy-to-use pellets to sink into the compost and liquid feeds for an extra boost later in the season. And for the ultimate in hassle-free container gardening, invest in an automatic watering system and timer so you can just sit back and enjoy the display.
