Under and around my Acer I have little Viola, they grow really well and compliment the colour of the leaves.

do you do a "Chelsea chop ? if so what plants !

I normally do the Sedum and the White Phlox but this year the Sedum is still very small although I will do the Phlox, maybe next week or so.

Potatoes in bags

Good for you for giving it a go Bexlloyd. I've grown potatoes in bags and containers many times. You are right that it's the leafy green bits you have to protect from the frost. A fleece should do fine depending on how low the temperature is ment to get. If you set them in a sheltered place that would help too. Good luck.

Violas or pansies. Which is superior?

I go for Violas usually but the colour mix of Pansies is much more varied. I like and sometimes grow both.
