What to do this month Pot up bulbs to force, update containers for autumn, start off hardy annuals and build a bug hotel
No garden should be without the burst of cheerful spring colour that bulbs provide. Daffodils are the classic spring bulb, but there are so many more to choose from, whether it’s muscari, scilla, ipheion, chionodoxa, leucojums or a whole range of fabulous fritillaries. And now’s the perfect time to plant them. Pop them in the ground or in pots at three times the depth of the bulb, with the pointed end facing upwards.
Prepare autumn and spring pots, start off hardy annuals and divide perennials. Louise Curley helps you plan ahead for many more months of colour to come
