Recommendation and advice wanted

Can anyone recommend any plants that will be nice over the winter. I already have a winter jasmine.

I bought it at the beginning of this year, and although the ones still in the shops were flowering nice and yellow, mine hasn't. Will it flower this year.



Winter flowering heathers will provide 3 months of colour.Also Hellebores. Not sure why your jasmine is not doing its thing.

mine is just starting to form buds so it should be ok.

lots of violas/pansies. Bellis daisies are nice too.

Flowering witch hazel (Hamamelis hybrids), maybe?

Skimmias are great right through until spring. I have a little one in a pot, Skimmia 'Magic Marlot', which I take out and keep elsewhere during the summer/autumn months, and others planted in the borders.

I wrote a series of blogs last year, and the year before, come to that - on winter interest. Try December 2008 on flowers in my winter garden, to start with. I hope it helps.
