My summer baskets !

they've well and truly gone over, I'll have to tip them all into the compost bin tomorrow.  Mainly mildew on the begonias. All the other houses in our road still have big lush baskets !

so, what can I plant now to give an instant show of colour please ?  There's 3 'manger' baskets (2 at 16 ins and 1 at 22ins).

all ideas gratefully received !!  Thanks

    Lots of Winter flowering pansies. They will give a lovely splash of colour.

    Evergreens and heuchera. No need to dead head and they don't tend to go mouldy.
