We’ve had a few days of sun, so spring is definitely here, with so many blooms popping up to welcome the season.
Though there are plenty of jobs to be done in your beds, borders and veg patch, if you need a break from digging, weeding or planting, keep your tools and equipment organised and ready for repotting and planting by cleaning used pots and containers.
For ornamental inspiration, these top ten picks are bound to bring a burst of brightness to your planting scheme this month. Or if you’re looking for a themed bed or border, creating a peony garden will not only supply beautiful flowers, but a mass of fragrance for you to enjoy through spring and summer.
