Plants for pots?
I have a NW facing paved area and wish to populate with pots etc. In pots, say 32cm x 32cm what could I use for permanent pot life that might also add a bit of winter colour? I already have Buxus there and will have summer colour in some troughs as well. I live in North Tipperary and sometimes get severe frosts.

Suitable kinds would be skimmia, phormium, hebe and euonymus, but you do not want too many winter plants or it looks tired in summer. Visit garden centres in different seasons and select plants you like, and that are suitable.
