Patio plants include trees, plants for growing in hanging baskets vegetables, orchids and in fact just about any plant that can be grown in a container. And in the UK they are popular as they can bring colour at times of the year when the plants outdoors are doing anything but that.
With a little though, and a little creativity, you can turn a patio into an urban jungle, the enclosed nature of many patios helps to create a micro climate that allows plants to grow in climates cooler than normal.
For year hangimg baskets ferns and orchids have been grown on patios, today we see Olive Trees, Lemon Trees, Dwarf Fruit Trees and even Topiary, all popular patio plants.
On the increase are vegetables including the leafy greens and tricker plants such as tomato plants both very popular. Patio potato barrels and strawberry planters along with herb planters allow a small kitchen garden to thrive on any sunny patio area.
