Spring fever and early blossom

The evenings are getting longer and the sunrays stretching over the patio make us eager to get back to gardening. From people, to plants and animals, the whole country has been waiting for the arrival of spring — so what a relief that it's finally here. We have plenty of inspiration to help you get creative with budding green plants, both indoors and outside.

Turn your terrace into a paradise of flowers

Throw the doors to your patios and urban balconies wide open, and breath in the fresh spring air. Read our tips for transforming this small space into an outdoor flowering paradise, and if you’re unsure how to go about planting, check out our outdoor guide to potting which explains everything.

What can you do in the garden now?

March can be quite treacherous when it comes to temperatures, but you can get to work outdoors on mild days with some useful spring garden jobs that will prompt growth and flowering later in the season. These early spring flowering plants will bring a much-needed splash of colour to outside, and these frost-resistant plants will see your outdoor space thrive whatever the weather.
