Plant suggestions please!
I am new here, and new to gardening - I have no idea what I'm doing! I have successfully grown sweet peas from my own seeds this year, so am inspired to continue!
I have some tubs and troughs on my decking, and a little box on the wall, and I would like to plant some winter flowering plants to cheer me up during the miserable colder months.
My online research indicate that violas, cyclamen and certain pansies might be best for my situation, and my partner bought me a cheap bedding pack containing a viola and a wallflower yesterday.
However, any advice regarding easy to grow plants that will flower during the winter would be appreciated. They would be fairly well protected, being right by the house, but hardiness would be a bonus as I'm new to gardening.
I'm in the West Midlands of the UK, in case that makes any difference.
