Janurary Plants; Which are the easiest?

I'm a flower addict so I'm always on the look out for colour at all times of the year.

Hellebores and Primroses are my favourites at the moment =)

You could also try starting some bare root perrenials in pots ready for Summer, these will benefit from being started as early as possible.

Windy - get your pots secure...

The greenhouse door which is on a runner has been lifted out twice. Fixed it now and using a support to stop it happening again.

Lost only 1 terracotta pot so far which costs like £1

Luckily for me I can pile all containers up against the house so they never blow over.  =)

The cyclamen in question never went fully dormant and has been repotted twice. I now have a huge Cyclamen in a 2L pot flowering wonderfully in the same spot.

Perhaps a Survey worth doing...

I live on the side of a valley luckily, so all the water runs down it. Never seem to lose any plants to a wet Winter.
