Patio Plants - Summer Patio Plants/Pot Plants
Patio plants are normally container grown and only moved outside to the patio or garden for the summer months. At other times they would be best kept in a frost free greenhouse or conservatory. Many patio plants are grown for their foliage colour or for ornamental or architectural effect rather than simply for their flowers. A good patio plant must be able to withstand full sun and be suitable for pot growing.
There are many other plants which can be successfully grown on the patio, our full plant list can be found by using the a-z on the right hand menu or using the keyword search top right, if you need something specific.
