New to the garden: container planting questions!
Hi. I'm very new to gardening and at the start of the year did some spring containers: tulips and daff bulbs, with pansies and violas on tops. They all seem to have died now and the pots aren't looking so great. I'd like to replace them with some summer/autumn flowers and maybe some greenery that will last more into winter. I'm a bit lost as how to do that though.. do I just dig out the existing plants and put in the new ones? Should I be save any of the roots/bulbs for next year? Or do they get thrown away now they've died back? Apologies if this is a silly question - any advice would be gratefully received!
