The garden sleeps, or so it would appear, but nature is very much awake as a select cast of delicate flowers unfurl from within frost-encrusted buds. These are not the blowsy show-stoppers of high summer, but dainty, retiring blooms that project subtle colour, fragrance and forms onto an unyielding, wintry stage. Amongst the most eye-catching are bulbs that, having lain dormant for months on end, now emerge to bring unrivalled beauty. One of the best places to display these little treasures is in pots, baskets and containers which, if placed close to the house on terraces, balconies or patios, can be enjoyed from indoors. One problem at this time of year is flowers being splattered with soil during heavy rain, so to prevent this happening, it's worth covering the soil with gravel or moss collected from rotting tree stumps.
