Spring Planting

My lets start at the front blog I wanted to get the front tided up a little and get some colour. A couple of weeks ago I went to a wonderful nursery called Staverton I can spend hours here as they are all about the plants. I brought a small range of plants that should start to give us some spring time colour, I am aiming to do all this myself for next spring but it was a step too far this year.

This is what I have been up to.....

Polyanthus two in blue and a yellow one along with a Narcissi Jetfire and Narcissi Minnow. Can you beat blue and yellow?



Two lovely blue Crocus and Endymion non-scriptus (true native bluebell) and a beautiful Polyanthus in pink to add hint of extra colour.



Three beautiful Hyacinthus - two in blue and one in white I put them in a planter on the wall as they are a little higher and should be easily seen.




This one I chose a couple of Sugar Rush Wallflowers one in yellow and one in orange in front I put a couple of daffodils again slightly taller which should look good against the white wall



This one is a lovely mix of daffodils and Polyanthus



I hope you like as my first ever attempt at spring colour.

  1. This is awesome. You're doing so well with your gardening project and now plants are in and adding a bit of colour( which by the way looks great) I'm sure you're still reaping the benefits and can start seeing the difference. Thanks for linking up with us on the #bigfatlinky

  2. I wish I had green fingers. My now ex, loves gardening. I love to admire the beautiful colours but don't have the desire to plant. I do however want to start doing basic gardening with the girls when they are older. Thank you for linking up with #SundayStars

    1. It's only really happened in the last year or so, I have dabbled before. Think it's an escape from everything else :0)

  3. Oooo how pretty! We literally spent two hours in the garden yesterday tidying it up since it was the first nice day that we could let Zach run around out there for longer than 5 minutes! I walked out and noticed we have two gorgeous purple crocuses (which we didn't plant!) and a whole heap of tulips and daffs growing! We only moved here last April and it was a complete mess so we spent most of the summer digging up weeds. It looks lovely out there today so I'm looking forward to having some colour out there and being a novice gardener! #sundaystars

    1. Our garden we thought was lovely when we brought the house but it's all green and big plants no real colour and there are sooooo many weeds even more due to the fact we have not touched it in about 3 years due to the little men that take up so much time. Let's get digging this year x
