Thanks for all the tips guys. I saw packs of six cyclamens in my local diy centre last week. I didn't buy though as they are in full bloom. Surely they will have gone over by winter? I'll buy some in late October I think.
I bought some lovely sized terracotta pots in my local supermarket, £5 each. I thought that was very reasonable. I'm gonna plant up two with cyclamens , two with crocus and I think the heather is a great idea. I saw a lovely white flowering one last winter in the local gc so I think I'll pick some up later in the season. Thanks for the tip.
Euphorbias are lovely. I might have a think about them. Never really thought them a winter plant though. Just last week I bought two sedums and two sea Holly's. The sea Holly's hopefully will hold their lovely blue colour.
