Winter Patio Pots

It's too late for you to start planting winter flowering pansies in your pots,  so you will need to rely on evergreen foliage plants as seen in these two pots. Try conifers, duonymus, skimmias, evergreen ferns, duphorbias, ivies or dogwood stems.

Christmas and oriental hybrid hellebores will give you long lasting blooms and winter heathers will start performing in February.

Pink Lady Tip: decorate evergreen plants in your garden with outdoor low voltage lights at Christmas and use trimmings from dwarf pines in your garden or from your Lodgepole Pine Christmas tree to furnish your festive wreath.
