Thanks everyone for your input ... I'm off to the garden centre first chance I get!

Thanks for your suggestions ... I especially like dovefromabove's pot with the conifer.  The only thing I wouldn't be sure of is how well the conifer would stand up to a pretty windy location?  My garden faces the prevailing wind and it can howl in the wintertime!  How can I also protect it against slugs?  I understand that you can't get nematodes until early next year!

I've been staring at an empty terracotta planter all Summer, meaning to fill it, but have never got 'round to it.  Now it's mid-August, I'm wondering a) whether it's best to leave it empty over the Winter (as I have no space to bring it inside) and b) if it is worthwhile to fill it, what to plant.

Any suggestions/advice would be gratefully accepted!
