Hi. Any ideas on a successful way to grow a plant fence boarder in planters that are removable? Have moved into a place with a potentially lovely road frontage but the fence is falling apart. Would be great to be able to hide it from view with some clever simple small bush natives in containers to encourage more bird life and enjoy the view. Thanks Zena

Hi,

Growing plants in containers is a great way to be able to move plants with you when you leave. Just remember growing plants in containers means more watering as things tend to dry out quicker in pots.

If you want a native border I think one of the best options would be Corokia as it is a smaller growing plant and it also prefers it a bit on the dryer side. Long trough-like pots are ideal for what you want to do. Sophora dragons gold is a smaller growing kowhai that may also be suitable if the troughs are big enough.

Other suggestions would be to grow a native grass border. Carex or Libertia would be a good option and carex would create a semi-cascade effect. You could try potting some smaller growing flax and cordylines as well. Tui’s love flax flowers!

As long as the plant has enough room to grow it can be grown in a pot. With a little TLC, they will thrive.

Pots that clip on to the top of the fence may also be a good option, and you can fill them with flowers.
