Best Plants For Spring

Charles Walton reveals the best plants to invest in this season:

  • Bulbs (tulips, crocuses, daffodils, hyacinths, dahlias, lilies, amaryllises)
    Spring bulbs make for the most colourful flowers. Don't cut off their leaves when they have finished flowering.
  • Shrubs (rhododendrons, camellias, viburnums, forsythias, lilacs, azaleas)
    Certain bushes make an even bigger impact than flowers, and their blooms are often fragrant, too.
  • Blossom trees (snowy mespilus, hawthorn, crab apple, pyrus, flowering dogwood, cherry tree)
    Though deciduous, these trees give year-round delight, starting with dreamy blooms during spring.
  • Vegetables (lettuces, cabbages, kale, broccoli, turnips, radishes, cucumbers, onions)
    It's best to plant a kitchen garden when the soil is warm, but March is a good time to plant cooler-season vegetables that can withstand that last of the winter frost. You can plant these crops directly in the soil, underneath a row cover, or in containers. Plant several varieties of each for a continuous harvest.
