Add some colourThe drab winter period is the perfect time to give your garden a colour makeover. Consider brightening up your outdoor space with some exuberant bedding plants such as polyanthus. Or, create a stunning feature by planting maroon pansies and silver-leafed cinerarias in stone pots, or near-black violas and grey dichondra in charcoal-coloured containers.Be creative and mix together different plant varieties, such as a dwarf conifers with cyclamen, pansies, primulas and trailing dichondra.Add interest by putting plants at different heights, such as pops of colour in tall planters and hanging baskets hung at eye-level.

8. Tidy up container plantsMany summer flowering annuals will be past their best by now. These should be removed and replaced with winter flowering annuals such as pansies (Viola tricolor subsp. hortensis), Polyanthus and Primula. In warmer, frost-free areas, also try Alyssum, Lobelia, Calendula and marigold (Tagetes). Weed all pots thoroughly and either top up or completely refresh potting mix so plants can put on their best show to liven up your deck or balcony during winter.

Primrose הצמחים האלה שאוהבים Woodland וצל, אפשר לשתול במורד החלקה. Primula" comes from the Latin word “primus,” which means "first," aptly referring in this case to the early-spring blooming time. Primrose is a semievergreen perennial that comes in a wide variety of colors. Its short stature makes it appropriate for the front of a container. Botanical name: Primula vulgaris USDA zones: 4 to 8 (find your zone) Light requirement: Partial shade Water requirement: Medium moisture Size: 3 to 6 inches tall and 3 to 9 inches wide
