In the covered shelter by my back door, the spring flowers look bright and cheerful :o)

Primula, and Jetfire Narcissi :-

Primula and Cyclamen persicum :-

Cyclamen coum :-

I keep them in a pot because I can’t grow them in the ground. They always die :o(

Tet a Tete Narcissi :-

Narcissi – Jetfire and Tet a Tet … and Snowdrops :-

Solanum capsicastrum berries :-

I’m going to try growing the seeds this year …

These Snowdrops and winter flowering Heather are growing in a pot :-

Crocus speciosus :-

I always grow spring bulbs etc in this shelter. It gives them protection from the weather, and also we can see them better than if they were down the garden :o)

I hope you’ve all got some spring colour too :o)

that is a sunny and very pretty collection. The scents will be good too if they are in shelter.

I drive my hubby mad by putting planters like this on the pond wall in full view of the kitchen window. Saves wandering down the garden.

I'm surprised that C coum don't survive for you Hywel. I have them in summer shade and not overly damp in the winter.

You have some lovely plant combinations :o)

What a lovely show and variety Hywel - I grow lots of things in pots it seems for me to be a safer way because I know where things are

They are lovely, Hywel - beautiful colours. I have lots of crocuses at the moment, and the snowdrops are just going over. The hellebores are out, and there are some primroses and just a few wood anemones beginning to show. The little daffodils are starting, but the larger ones are still in tight buds. The garden is definitely waking up 🌱🌾🌱.

Wow! Hywel what colour you have.

Gorgeous spring flowers Hywel.....so pretty together and such a great idea to have them where you can see them easily, also saving them getting spoiled by the cold spring rain.......

I know I've planted many new bulbs last autumn and lost track of what I planted where, but things are starting to wake up.

Thank you all :o)

Wonderful Spring flowers Hywel. You are very good at putting colours together. Pink Prims with orange trumpet daffs sounds like a recipe for disaster but it works.

What a wonderful spring display you have there, Hywel! :-)) I love so many different plants altogether in one small place - a bit like my balcony, only under cover! (There's not much in the way of cover really on our balcony)

My Crocuses are all in flower as well now as well as my big Daffs & just today I noticed that my Tete-a-Tete have opened as well! :-))
