Large shrubs such as this conifer, should be potted into a large container.  Place plenty of crocks or drainage materials at the base of the pot drain hole.  If the plant is at all potbound, tease the roots loose before planting in a new pot.  Fill around the rootball with compost pressing it down firmly around the edges of the pot.

Smaller plants like the bergenia should be planted in a pot slightly larger than the existing one.  Place crock pieces in the bottom, position the plant and then fill around the edges with compost.  Repeat with remaining plants.

Plants will stay moist longer if they are stood in saucers of wet gravel.  This group of plants will do well positioned in partial shade.  Water regularly and feed with slow release plant food granules in the spring and autumn.
