First flowers of the year

The last couple of weeks I've started to spot the first flowers of the year popping up both in my urban garden, and while out and about, a clear and sure sign that Spring is coming. I get so excited over these early beauties. I really treasure them as I look forward to more light, better weather, and the chance to get out in my urban garden more often. Roll on Spring!

Plant bulbs now for stunning flowers in Spring

I love spring flowers. I think tulips are actually my favourite of all flowers, and I also adore delicate miniature iris, narcissi, crocus and muscari, as well as pure white paperwhites and showy hyacinths. Spring flowers are the first flowers of the year, signalling the end of the long cold winter, the beginning of new growth and lighter, longer days. I get so excited the first day in spring that I venture outside to find flowers! Plus, the varieties, particularly of tulips, are so diverse that you can have fun experimenting with different colour combinations to create amazing displays. And, last but definitely not least - bulbs are easy peasy to plant and look after. So I urge you - plant some spring bulbs now - you will be so glad you did come the spring.
