Position the container in a sheltered spot and where you want some winter interest, and place a layer of crocks at the bottom, then three-quarters fill with compost.
Plant the cineraria in the centre of the container, to the same depth in the new compost as it was in its previous pot. Encircle it with the cyclamen plants and position the ivies at the front and sides of the pot so they can tumble over the edge.
Fill the container with compost, to within 5cm of the rim, firming around the plants with your fingers to squeeze out any air pockets.

How large is the pot for the cyclamen, ivy & cineraria display?

just had a look at that.about 12-15 inches I should think. It may be at itsbest November to March but that will be down to the ivy. the cyclamen will be over before christmas and the cineraria will look a bit rough.
