Giving a country garden an urban twist

I'm desperate to do something interesting with my garden, and to give my inside spaces a bit of a greener feel. So I was really pleased when I stumbled upon these fibreglass planters with metallic finishes by The Chelsea Gardener. They're lightweight enough for me to use inside, but also frost-proof and can stay outside through winter (unlike my old cream metal planters, the bottoms of which fell out when I picked them up this Spring - the wet winter weather meant rust had completely eaten through them). Sadly at a shade under £250, I might have to save up for a while...


I'm also on the hunt for some geometric vases that I can plant with succulents and fill with spiky flowers to contrast with my very cottage-y style. I very much like these from Houseology (£61), which you can find at www.occa-home.co.uk.  


A bit more affordable is this gorgeous yellow number, from House of Fraser for £30:


And colours-wise, I think this Kelly Hoppen number, also £30, might be just about perfect for my house:
