Lots. that pink and white willow ?Flamingo

Dahlias, except a few of the species ones

Dip dyed heathers

gazanias and anything that looks like them

Huge flowered  fuchsias, I like the more refined versions

Tree ferns, except where tree ferns grow naturally

Anything trained like a lollipop


That'll do for now

I protect all tender plants by not growing any 

What about my tender self?

Primula vulgaris (the wild primrose) or bright coloured garden plants?

Unless someone comes up with a good reason not to, I would plant them. They won't poison each other or anything like that. But do make sure the nerines get full sun.

I always ignore any advice like that unless a clear reason is given at the time.

Having said that, I wouldn't put them in a pot together. Nerines like to get pot bound, undisturbed, daffs don't. Nerines like the hot dry places, daffs don't.

Bulb questions

novice, choose some that are 'suitable for naturalising' if they're going in a grass verge. Some fancy ones give up after a few years if they're not split up and given wonderful conditions. February Gold is good

It depends on what you get. Tulips are best planted late. Narcissi and crocus should be fine as well
