Even on the coldest of days, even with a layer of snow, green leaves and colorful flowers can be seen showing off.
You can make the most of winter flowering bulbs by planting them in sheltered areas of your garden.
Under trees and shrubs, beside walls and fences and rockeries that are sheltered from bitter winds.
Plant them where they can be seen from your kitchen window or other windows you can look out into the garden from.
