A well known tip is to infill gaps in a border with colourful annuals, but here is a short planting plan that is guaranteed to provide your borders with colour all summer long and into autumn.

Garden Planting Whatever The Weather

Early Risers in the Garden

Who says we have to wait until the 20th of March for spring? Already the days are longer and the earth is beginning to respond. We know the dismal days of winter are at an end when flowers like Cyclamen coum, snowdrops (Galanthus nivalis), Crocus and Iris reticulata have surfaced.
