1 FOR IN­STANT GAR­DEN­ING, noth­ing beats a pot crammed with spring bulbs. Shop for an ex­u­ber­ant ra­nun­cu­lus mache mix to brighten a pa­tio or add a wel­com­ing touch by your door. Go for a colour hit like hot pink or rich red.

2 A CLEMA­TIS WILL BE A SPEC­TAC­U­LAR CLIM­BER, but it fares best if it is first planted in a pot be­fore be­ing trans­planted into the gar­den. A sim­ple stick frame sup­ports the shoots as they grow.

3 TREAT YOUR­SELF TO SOME STYLISH GAR­DEN­ING TOOLS to give your out­door space an in­stant lift. The Haws Slim Wa­ter­ing Can, R1 199, Yup­piechef, comes in four dif­fer­ent colours and is rust-re­sis­tant for dura­bil­ity.

4 DRESS YOUR OUT­DOOR TA­BLE by adding a pot or planter of blooms, suc­cu­lents, and a few out­door lanterns and cush­ions – easy styling touches that make the space wel­com­ing.
