Annuals (or perennials used as annuals) - Calendula, Chrysanthemum paludosum (nice white daisy flowers for winter bloom), Bellis perennis, Primrose, Sweet Peas, Cyclamen (plant a little high so they do not rot).
Shrubs- Chaenomeles (Flowering Quince-can be a spreader), Daphne*, Elaeagnus pungens 'Marginata', Cornus stolonifera (Redtwig Dogwood-for great winter stem color).
Trees- Arbutus 'Marina', Crataegus (Hawthorn) , Chionanthus retusus (Chinese Fringe Tree).
Veggies - Onion sets, Shallots, Spinach, Lettuce.
*Daphne shrubs can quickly disappear from nurseries. If you really want one, start shopping now before they are all gone! Choose well branched, full plants with lots of flower buds that haven't bloomed yet.
Extras - Dormant Oil or Neem Oil, Frost Cloth and Clothes Pins to hold cloth onto plant.
