Going for Winter Gold

Planting for winter interest could not be simpler, with a range of flowering plants to choose from. Amongst the earliest to flower are witch hazels, with their vibrant spidery flowers, and winter aconites, said to thrive on sites once occupied by the Romans. To clothe fences, choose fragrant winter jasmine or Clematis cirrhosa with its clusters of creamy, speckled flowers. Hanging baskets can be filled with tiny cyclamen daffodils interspersed with spurge and winter flowering polyanthus, whilst the smiling faces of violas positively glow when grown en masse, or blended with golden-tipped snowdrops, crocuses or narcissi in terracotta containers.
