Seasoned gardeners know that in order to enjoy beautiful flowers in the spring, now’s the time to put in the thought. After all, what lifts the heart more after the dark winter months than the first blooms appearing?

One of the easiest ways of ensuring early colour in your garden is to plant spring bulbs. Planted correctly, these can simply be left over winter until they’re ready to make their appearance in the new year.

If you put in a little effort now – you’ll reap the rewards when that first snowdrop pokes its head out of the ground.
