I planted up two pots for winter decoration and put them by the front door, using some small plants recently purchased.

One pot has Gaultheria, Euonymus, Winter Viola, Ivy, and Crocuses ..

One pot has Cineraria Dusty Miller, Ajuga,
Cyclamen coum, Winter Viola, Ivy and Crocuses …

They look a bit scruffy at the moment but after the plants get settled in I don’t suppose they’ll look too bad :)

I can see in a week or two when they settle they will be wonderful. I like your choice of plants.

You are fortunate to be able to grow these lovely plants in winter. They are bright and colorful and I'm sure will give you much enjoyment. The Dusty Miller really enhances everything around it. Stay well.

Thank you. I am hoping we'll get another mild winter so that they will thrive.

They look lovely Hywel, I do like winter pots especially with the bright red berries shining against the darker leaves but they are sadly lacking here this year, its a case of make do with what I already have due to being shut in yet again, I'll just have to admire yours instead, thankfully I have plenty of primroses, pansies and bulbs planted up so I'll just bring them up when its begins to look a bit drab, no frost here yet so I still have a few flowers to brighten things up...Take care Hywel,,xx
