Wall basket plants

I'm having a knee op soon and don't expect to be mobile in time to plant up my summer wallbaskets.Is there anything I can put in now that will withstand any bad weather and give me some interest when I'm sitting about.All I can think of is ivy!

    HI Nadia. I had a little white Arabis and a Carex 'Evergold' in one when I was in a rented house for a while with just a paved area at the back. I added a green/gold ivy and it looked good all year and flowered on and off right through the winter as well. There's quite a few of these alpine type plants which might do the job equally well. You could maybe try some of the trailing sweet peas which are suitable for hanging baskets. They seem to be quite popular and easy to obtain now - I think my boss had some on her house walls last year. image

    It's a place where beautiful isn't enough of a word....

    I live in west central Scotland - not where that photo is...
