You’ve heard about car share, well this is pot share.. well recommended

This sad old broken terracotta pot still offers life to two plants that make their mark at opposite seasons of the year.  Leucojum gravetye – a bulb that produces a snowdrop lookalike that is longer lasting than a snowdrop, taller, with strap like green foliage which really comes into its own now.  It looks great naturalised in a woodland setting but at the same time looks fab in a pot.  So I have just cut down the pot sharer, Miscanthus.  This has produced loveley fresh leaves summer to Autumn with flowers that have lasted all winter. It is quite happy in a pot and generously shares the space.

A bulb that needs neither soil or water to flower. I hope you enjoy watching its progress with me as it takes pride of place on my table!
