First post and very novice gardener but want to try and get my garden in order.
I'm looking for advice on if there are any nice looking / bright coloured plants that would be good in tubs / hanging baskets.for over the winter and into spring. Just wanted to keep a bit of colour in the garden over winter.
Many thanks in advance for any help
Winter pansies, polyanthus make a perfect winter display, try adding a few bulbs into the pots for early spring colour, Monty Don did an Iris reticulata display on GW, catch up on iplayer, full of good stuff.
Winter Flowering Heathers, Variegated Ivy and Primulas are lovely plants in Winter.
Just done my front garden planters.I Iused dark pink heathers green skimmers pinky-red leaved heucheras, ivy,some greeny grases and pink and red pansies.I was amazed when a neibour knocked on my door to say they looked stunning.
I was stunned and you could say I was also tickled pink.
