As the winter months end, it’s time to think about Spring in the garden, and what we might plant!
Spring time in the garden can be a most magical time, as we have spoken about in previous gardening posts. Our DC Thomson online shop is full of lots of wonderful plants ready for you to choose. Here are some of the plants to consider growing in your garden this season:
Tulip, Crocus, Daffodils, Hyacinths, Dahlia, Lily, Amaryllis
Spring-planted bulbs make some of the most colourful garden flowers. Make sure not to cut off their leaves when they have finished flowering.
Avocados, Blueberries, Lemons, Pineapple, Apricot, Strawberries, Kiwi
Growing fruits in the UK can be difficult but not impossible, and it will definitely give your garden an edge.
Lettuce, Cabbage, Kale, Broccoli, Turnips, Radish, Cucumber, Onions
Garden vegetables are usually planted when the soil is warm, but March can be a great time to plant cool-season vegetables that can withstand the last frosty days of the month.
You may opt to plant these vegetables directly in the soil, underneath a row cover, or in containers. For a continual harvest, plant several varieties of each.
Chives, Lavender, Rosemary, Thyme, Parsley, Basil, Mint
Compliment your springtime recipes with the unmistakable flavours and fragrance of fresh, home-grown herbs this season. Dedicate a row for herbs in your garden or grow them on your kitchen windowsill for easy reach.
Rhododendron, Camellia, Viburnum, Forsythia, Lilac, Azalea
Some of these bushes provide a bigger visual impact than flowers and produce blooms that are fragrant, too.
Snowy Mespilus, Hawthorn, Crab Apple, Pyrus, Flowering Dogwood, Cherry Tree
Deciduous as they may be, these trees give a year-round delight starting of course with dream-like blooms during spring.
