well,summer bedding plants for a bright display if and when the sun comes out,spring fill with primulas or all manner of plants its a personnel thing.if you go to a good garden center you will see plants that might inspire you.That's the best i can say as it is what you like that counts.

a lot of my daffs have spoiled and the slugs had a go at them,the tiny daffs are o.k .My tulips in pots in the garage are doing well and the ones in the garden are just showing.I spotted  one patch of lung-wort coming out ,spring cant be that far off can it?

right down to the green house then,shame the suns not out.

the weather

you have to be patient and wait for that moment,don't be afraid to out in the cold (not the freezing cold) or rain and potter around.Venture out to the garden center and dream and spend time looking at the plants etc and a cup of coffee.Gardening is always different every year a challenge something to create your self ,faults and all,to learn and not get despondent when things go wrong or the weather seems hopeless.

I think if they are not flowering so well and they have grown bigger its time to divide up and make more.
