I'm pretty new to gardening and only this year graduated from pots to actually digging out a proper bed. All summer I have had Poppies, Sunflowers, Cornflowers and Lavender in this new flower bed.
It is at the front of the house in full sun and heavy clay soil. I have no idea what to do with it over the winter so it looks pleasant. I want to plant something in it to keep the colour and I have been thinking of pansies and crocuses plus daffodils and such like.
I was also thinking of one of those red dwarf dogwoods but I wouldn't want it to be in the way of summer flowers next year.
Can anyone give suggestions?
I have attached two photos. One of the bed when it was first planted and one taken yesterday.
