Re: What to put in a planter.
Hello Mr Fraggle
it's getting a bit late for planting spring flowering things now .
My wallflowers have been in for weeks and they may be difficult to find for sale now.
You may still be able to buy Pansies, Violas, Primulas and some spring bulbs to plant a display. You can buy these in some supermarkets or places like B&Q
To plant a more permanent display I would wait for the spring .
You will need some drainage holes if you are planting directly into the trough and some drainage material like large pebbles or broken crocks then a good compost on top.
