Last week we planted a series of containers for a new branch of Keatons Estate Agent in Hackney, East London.
The planting needed to be resilient, have a long season interest and provide a cool urban feel.
We selected a range of tough Mediterranean plants with contrasting textures and included a limited number of herbaceous plants for additional colour and interest later in the season.
Pittosporum tobira, Buxus sempervirens topiary and Rosmarinus officinalis prostratus group provide strong structure as well as flowers and scent. Later in the summer Geranium 'Rozanne' and Agapanthus africanus will provide a pop of colour.
