Winter Flowering Plants for Containers

If you are struggling for ideas to add so much needed interest in your garden, here are few of the most popular plants that will bring colour to your winter garden: ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

❇️Pansies always look lovely in any setting and are very hardy. They will flower much longer than other bedding plants and you have lots of colour combos to choose from, so design a colour scheme and go crazy 🤪⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

❇️Violas are another pretty and easy-to-grow bedding plant. They look like pansies, but the flower head is smaller. Trailing varieties work well in hanging baskets and window boxes.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

❇️Cyclamens will fill your borders with colour, even when it’s miserable outside. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

❇️Heathers make excellent bedding plants over winter. For more subtle colour, plant some between brighter bedding plants such as pansies and cyclamens.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

❇️Primroses are happy in winter, as they are very hardy. Add them to your pots, containers, and window boxes for a splash of colour. They will begin flowering from mid-winter, so mix and match with autumn bedding plants.
