    Can anyone possibly identify the plants used in these containers please?

    Don't mean to sound igborant, I'm totally new to gardening so haven't got a clue but I'm looking to replicate this look in my containers if I can.

        Google Cranesbill Nursery

        Have a look at that site. Some of those Cranesbill varieties look great in containers, as they tend to form large, rounded balls of flower. You could inter-plant them with taller species to get a similar effect to that which you see in those images.
