Welcome miss kitty kat....

Well winter pansies and cyclamen still need attention.  Not as much water now.  I would add food sticks though.    They will keep going on amd off during warm spells in winter n spring.  I would restock next spring for fresh summer display

Best to buy a little,during each season too .this way you will bson easing towards year round colour.  

Food can also get food pellets.

hi miss kitty kat, if your baskets are on your front door wall as mine are, they do not get the rain, so i have to remember that as they dry out easily (summer time)

gardening is a wonderful learning curve and costly most of the time.

happy weeding as it never ends
