BRIGHTEN UP BARE BEDS WITH POTTED COLOUR
Got gaps? Fill them with flowers. Most spring vege gardens look a bit barren so, while you wait for the soil to warm up sufficiently for beans, tomatoes, courgettes, pumpkins and their spacehogging siblings, whack in some cheap and cheerful potted colour. Most spring flowers come in pastel shades of lemon, baby blue and pale pink, but I love perennial geums (pictured above) for their racy and reliable shades of orange, yellow and red. Look for them in garden centres now.
