Still time to plant winter window boxes

It’s been a mild winter season so far, but there is still time if you haven’t had your boxes and pots planted up. Also a great time to plant up bulbs underneath your arrangements for colourful spring pop-ups.

Not so spring like today

I missed my opportunity planting in the sun, i should have planted my window boxes yesterday. Today has gone back to winter and it feels cold outside. i will venture out later on to plant my edible window box containing thyme, oregano and chives plus some primroses for colour. The floral window boxes have purple polyanthus. I am sure these new editions will brighten up the terrace.

Spring

Spring is in the air! All those beautiful yellow daffodil bulbs are now sprouting.

Yellow works really well with a variety of colours such as purple, white, and even pink.

Team your daffodils with primroses and polyanthus, violas and other bulbs flowers such as sweet smelling hyacinths.
