Thanks for all your comments and advice! In the end, I ordered some winter pansies online (plantmenow.co.uk - would use again) - went for a red and white theme.
I went for larger flowers, as I prefer them in winter. I thought they'd be more low-maintenance. However, thanks for all advice about violas - I had never come across them before, but will definitely get some in the spring. I love the idea of an orange/yellow combo.
