EP216 - How to pot up A Gaura Container

 On Todays 5minute Friday, we are going to show you how to pot up a Gaura Container. 

These plants will come back every year, flowering and just getting better and better. 

These long flowering perennial plants are fantastic in a container and will bring colour from late spring, all the way through to the early autumn.
Another thing that makes Gaura plants ideal for a container, is they are very low maintenance. With the exception of watering and the occasional dead heading, they are happy to carry on producing a fantastic show, with not a lot of input from you.

  1. Fill your pot, with a multi-purpose compost, almost all the way to the top.
  2. We are planting 9cm pots, so they need to sit evenly with the soil.
  3. Tap it down to release any air gaps. Then just add a little more compost, if necessary.
  4. We have 3 Gaura, white, pink and deep red. These will flower almost all the way to the autumn.
  5. Squeeze the pot to release the plant, and just place it down onto the compost, repeat the process for each plant. Then just fill the gaps with the compost, I am not compressing it.
  6. These are hardy perennials, so now just give them a water and they can go straight outside.
