Allowing plants to grow in pots and containers can be very practical for most gardens. It allows gardeners the chance to move plants around to suit their liking and to get more sun light.

Not only that, it can help gardeners to use the most amount of space available to them. Many species of modern plants will grow happily in pots as long as they have enough drainage.

Birmingham Live reports that it is important to bear in mind which parts of the garden gets the most direct sunlight and select pots which are suitable for each plant. Remember, over watering can be just as dangerous to plants as forgetting to water them at all.

Below is a list of six plants that will happily live in pots outside:


Loss of smell and taste is acknowledged as a side-effect for some people with coronavirus
Roses are a classic and simple plant to grow in a pot and come in a wide range of colours

A classic but a classic for a reason. Rose bushes are very well suited to growing in pots, with patio roses perhaps the best variety to opt for if you want to keep things simple. They’re available in a wide range of colours so can complement any arrangement you’ve currently got going in your outdoor space.


While more closely associated with indoor living, succulents make it very easy to care for outdoor plants as well. You can mix and match them if you want to create a more natural effect or stick to one variety for that more contemporary look. One thing to note is that they don’t like to sit in soggy soil so make sure they have plenty of drainage in whatever plant you pot them.


Lavender brings a pop of colour to pots as well as providing a calming scent

A great choice if you want to add a bit of colour to your set-up, but make sure you go for an English variety if you want to keep the maintenance to an absolute minimum. Lavender doesn’t like to get too much water though, so make sure you’ve got it in a decent drainage situation.


Hardy Geraniums will happily grow in pots and produce masses of flowers for a very little amount of effort on your part. As the name suggests, they are fairly low maintenance so you won’t have to keep a watchful eye on them all year round like some species of garden plants.


Hydrangea garden by house at sunset. Bushes is pink, blue, lilac, purple. Flowers hedge is blooming in countryside and town streets in spring and summer outdoor.
Hydrangeas will grow well in containers and pots and bloom for months

While often associated with large gardens, Hydrangeas will happily grow in smaller containers too (especially if you opt for the dwarf variety). They bloom for months for very little care on your part and will add a range of soft pinks and purples to whatever space they’re added to.


While they may not sound like the most exotic choice for your new garden project, ornamental grasses are a great way to add some texture to your garden. Many of them will survive the winter months as well so they can give you something pleasant to look at when the rest of your flowers have gone from view.
