Plants in baskets
Pansies are an annual flower that grow in the winter. A great way to brighten up your garden during the colder months. As these flowers have a vibrant burst of colours, they are ideal for hanging baskets.


 

Greenery
Greens in your garden look best in the winter and Autumn is the ideal time to fill in the gaps in your borders. Glossy evergreens are a staple to all autumn gardens. The mix of warm soil and cool air stimulates root growth to help your tree or shrub grow during this period.
