Will you plant those out, Karen or keep in pots ?

The pots are just perfect for my walls, so I used my vouchers to buy these two on the right. The bigger one is a slightly different colour....not as red. I think I shall keep these plants in these pots for winter interest, but maybe add to the pot collection for some summer bedding next year. Thanks! :)

...Also, I've tried 'Little Red Robin' twice in the ground and it floundered. So I'm hoping it will do better in the pot. I have a friend who has a lovely one in her soil. But her soil is sandy so I've added some sand to my compost in this pot. And on top of that, the colour of the foliage is great against the colour of the wall, so it will stay in the pot.

A funny thing we had Little Red Robin in the ground in two different places and it nearly died, OH potted it up until it had recovered and now it is back in the ground and so far so good!!

It seems to be quite a weak plant doesn't it. This one is already a good size. About twice as big as my earlier attempts. That ought to give it a better chance.

I've had Photinia Red Robin and Photinia Pink Marble for some time now.... both are in rather poor soils competing with other plants, so they don't grow very profusely.
In my neighbourhood I've seen Red Robin romping away quite rampantly as a hedge, when planted in rich soil.
