    I made a planter for my mums decking balcony but it really doesn't get much sun, especially over the winter. Anyone got any suggestions as to what I should plant?

    The compost is 5 inches deep and 6 inches wide.

    I really would like to change to summer bedding next May, so, only really need a bit of colour that will survive in shade.119601197_944514619358344_6662601549842822352_n.jpg119667872_245446233446734_3073885578329306526_n.jpg

      For the winter I'd put violas in that very nice long planter.
      (A few cyclamen would do well in full shade)
      In the summer I'd put in impatiens for a riot of colour that can handle semi shade.
