The Pansies on the balcony are starting to look much better now the weather has turned milder.

Lovely combination of the deep red and white

I just bought some blue and yellow pansies yesterday to plant in pots. I couldn't stand the grey and cold any longer. Hopefully the worst of winter is over and they'll thrive.

I love pansies....

Yes, I thought the same when I planted them, 6d!

Lauram, so pleased you could get hold of some of these hardy & versatile plants. They have survived all winter, even though we have had as much as -10ÂșC, which is an awful low temp for this part of the country!

The council planted 1,000s around town last autumn, including the garden bed in front of our block of flats.

I tried to find some a few weeks ago and couldn't! But Home Depot had a lot of them yesterday. Amazing that yours have survived such low temperatures.

Yes, Lauram, they are very hardy little plants!
