    Hi everyone,

    I've got another idea that I need your help with please!

    I want to put a couple of window boxes on our north facing living room window sill.

    But what, if anything will be happy growing here?

    I was thinking cyclamen, maybe trailing ivy, hellebores and winter violas or similar for a bit of colour. Do-able? Any other ideas? And are there any spring bulbs that could cope with full shade?

    As always, any suggestions much appreciated.

    :thankyou:
