One of the first things we wanted to do when we moved, was buy pots for our balcony. I visited a local nursery to get advice for our windy, coastal location. We chose these pots and planted violas and Rhaphiolepis (Indian hawthorn). They are thriving and look good with our ceramic poppies from The Tower of London.


Apparently these bushes are “one of the most bulletproof shrubs around”. As they mature they will have these tiny white flowers.
