This year, many of my plants are doing better in pots on the patio than in my landscape. Of a new Lavender, I put two in a border, which are doing poorly, and one in a pot (front, left center), which is doing very well. Ditto the common Salvia (annual), whose red spikes have almost disappeared from my landscape (too many hungry snails!). Also in this picture, starting to the left of the Lavender, Creeping Jenny, a/k/a Moneywort, Parsley, Alternanthera Gail's Choice, Coneflower, with a large Sedum behind it, Alberta Spruce and a brand new tomato, not yet on the market: "Tomaccio". Look for it next year.
