My petunias and busy lizzies have been great over this summer but looking a bit tired now, so I'm getting ready to turf them out.

I'll put some daffodil bulbs in, but what can I put in to give some colour interest between now and spring.

I normally fall back on the old pansy, but I'd like a change, if there is one.

Trailing ivy, snowdrops, cyclamen, primulas

Have you thought about putting in some evergreen perennials like heuchera (red, green or caramel coloured leaves), black lily grass (ophiopogon), bronze carex or the mini-shrubs like skimmia that have berries?

There's quite a lot to choose from in the garden centres at the moment if you look outside the usual suspects.
