Plant of the Week: Autumn/winter pansies
With a bit of luck your late-summer containers are looking fabulous at the moment, all hot reds, oranges and yellows. But a good gardener is always one step ahead - so now is the time to be thinking about what you'll be planting to follow them.
Luckily we've got just the thing. Pansies are the troopers of the bedding brigade: cheerful, easy-going and flowering through all but the very coldest weather from autumn through till spring. Plant generous potfuls of cheery mixed colours, or stick to a single colour theme for a more sophisticated look: you'll find just what you need on sale in our garden centre right now.
Sow winter salads
Sow a few lettuces and other salad ingredients in modules to keep in a coldframe, and then when gaps appear you can just drop them in to keep the crops coming. Loose-leaf lettuces like 'Lollo Rossa', beetroot, mizuna or spinach all do the job nicely.
