Spring is one of Adam Pasco’s favourite times of the year. As the days get warmer you can almost watch the plants grow day by day, as new leaves unfurl, bulbs burst into bloom and the winter bed continues to flower. There is lots to do in the spring flowering garden as Adam explains.
As we move into spring there is plenty to do in the garden if the weather stays fine. Adam Pasco gives us his guide to what jobs to be getting on with.
Several fuchsia varieties are totally hardy outside in the UK, even in the toughest winters. To protect them a thick layer of compost or bark spread in the autumn helps to ensure the frost does not penetrate down and damage the crown of the plant. Adam Pasco has some tips on how to look after them as we move into spring.
Now is the time of year to think about ordering your summer flowering bulbs. Adam Pasco is a big fan, finding it hard to resist the mail order companies and garden centres. Some of Adam’s regular favourites are begonias, dahlias, canna lily and pineapple lily.
