I have a smallish bed and several pots and baskets which i would like to fill with colour for winter but id like something different to pansies and violas ? Any ideas ? Thanks in advance ☺

    Grasses, ivy, and those little bedding cyclamen (if they're going in a sheltered spot).

    Gardening in Central Norfolk on improved gritty moraine over chalk ... free-draining.

  • Heucheras,  lovely with grasses,  and tuck in some early flowering spring bulbs, that will add colour from Feb onwards.

    If you have acid compost, winter flowering heathers are nice too - NOT the dyed/ painted ones!

    Like Buttercups idea, I use January & February Gold or Spring Dawn daffs
