Spring planting

March 23, 2020 Matt Lindsay

There’s nothing like colourful flowers growing in your garden to make you feel like Spring is finally here! The bright yellow of daffodils is instant cheerfulness, but it becomes truly inspiring when a skilled gardener grows companion plants like an artist’s palette.

Try a mix of dianthus, saxifrage and primula, which all have similar sized flowers to create a harmonious mosaic effect. If you’re planning ahead, add daffodil bulbs (planted in the autumn) to the mix to give height and larger flowers for contrast.
