Planting into a pot can give extra needed height to feature plants

When you have a plant thats a bit short in height to be a feature in the garden, I find its very useful to plant it in a pot to get you the extra height – as we can see in the photo with this Raphiolepis umbellata topiary standard. If this plant was growing straight in the ground, it wouldn't look so impressive. The stem is only about 40cm high, but putting it in the pot raises the whole specimen up by another 60cm. This plant has rooted through the holes in the bottom and into the surrounding soil, hence it never dries out and will carry on living happily.
