Ditto down here as well MA, I only have about a doz. in pots out the front, will eventually cull a few that are not performing well and pop some into the garden over Winter thumbs-up

After thought AM, I also have then up on pot feet, that does help and all the pots are painted to reflect the sun as well Exclamation

I painted my black pots, in order to reflect the sun instead of absorb it. Pots do well if they are sunk in the ground, don't dry out as quickly Smile
