Hi, I want to fill a large wooden planter with early/mid sping flowering plants - mostly bulbs I guess (a novice, you can tell can't you). While I realise that to achieve this, I need to start soon, does anyone have any suggestions for attractive planting that will see me though the autumn and winter as I don't really want a bare, soil filled container outside my window for the next 6 months while the bulbs do what bulbs do! I've been carrying out some research but I'm paralysed by the apparent number of options! Thanks so much. Jo.

Viola or pansy should work well, they'll probably slow down flowering when it gets very cold

along with your bulbs you could plant add some bleeding heart plants for a longer display of delicate foliage and dainty flowers which will go through till mid summer at least. Is it a sunny postion because Dicentra can cope with shade too.
