1. Autumn planting in a pot glows in color
If you like strong colors, you can try an autumn cluster in the plantings, which blooms until frost. Intense purple goes well with lime green ‘Albert’s Gold’ heather. Liverweeds can also withstand the cold and some of them can overwinter in the flower bed or rock garden Ilona. A casual addition to the planting comes with a copper hinge. Although it doesn’t thrive over the winter, the dried hay looks great even in the winter.
If you are planting in a flat pot or pot, you can plant the plants symmetrically on both sides of the middle plant or compose in the background of the tallest plant, insert medium-tall plants in between, and finally low, descending plants at the edges of the pot.

2. Autumn planting is like a small forest
Conifers and heather are durable and look good in autumn plantings for a long time, even until spring. Some conifers can also overwinter in frost-resistant pots. Of the perennial conifers, pines and zebras survive in winter potted plantations, for example, junipers
better. Junipers are more sensitive to spring sores. In addition to conifers, heather and crowberry are suitable for the forest plant theme.
Pots made of frost-resistant material can decorate the home’s entrance year-round. These pots are made of concrete, polystone and wood, among other things. Also some ceramic pots

3. The autumn pot planting shimmers with silver
Autumn cyclamen and king begonia are suitable for early autumn potted plantings. They can’t stand the frost, but a little coolness doesn’t put them in an instant. Combine silver-gray-leafed plants for a delicate pink-flowered autumn cyclamen and a spectacular-leaved royal begonia.
Silver-leafed plants act as complementary plants in the plantation, calming the whole and on the other hand emphasizing the more spectacular plants. For example, try silver wire, silver leaf, and silver herb.

4. Autumn planting in a pot raises the leaves to the main part
When potting, pay attention to leafy plants. Spectacular fairy flowers and elf flowers are suitable for planting in a pot garden from spring to autumn, but also as a perennial delight for flower beds and planting areas. The casual canvas is a beautiful ground cover perennial, but especially the book-loving ‘Burgundy Glow’ delights with its beautiful colorful leaves in autumn pots.
If you need flowering for these perennials, try, for example, a single-flowered autumn anemone and a tall autumn mimic. If you want to move plants from potted plantations to overwintering for winter, for example, lift the seedlings out of the pot before winter comes.
