Spring has sprung! The last of the snow is finally gone and the clouds have parted to reveal the bright blue sky. For most of us, this means that we can finally put away the jackets and boots, which have been our best friends all winter long! In celebration of the coming of spring, our team at Haute Florist thought we’d bring you our 10 favourite spring flowers in the UK! No matter where you live in Britain, there’s bound to be something on this list that you can take advantage of while they last. Let’s get started!
Daffodils, a type of spring flowering plant, come in various colours and shapes. The most common variety is white and pink. You can also get them with yellow or blue flowers. They grow best with full sun or dappled shade and flower during March and April. Daffodils need moist soil to do well.
Other common daffodils include such hybrids as Jonquil, which is white or cream with yellow centres and is often fragrant, and King Alfred which is an old variety with yellow or white flowers.
Other flowering bulbs are also popular choices for spring. You can choose from hyacinths and tulips with their bright colours and delightful fragrances, as well as crape myrtles and grape hyacinths which have showy flowers that come in shades of yellow, white and purple. They're all easy to grow, preferring full sun or dappled shade but needing well-drained soil.
Tulips are one of the first flowering plants to appear during spring. In March and April, you'll find them blooming with their bright yellow, pink and purple hues. They're dependent on where you live though; if you live in a colder climate, they might not appear until later in the year because it needs a warmer environment for them to grow. However, you can purchase tulip bulbs from nurseries at any time of year and plant them when your area is ready for them.
One of the most popular spring flowers is the bluebell. It's one of few plants that will bloom in dappled shade and depend on moist soil to survive. Bluebells are best planted in March or April, but they can be found at any time during the spring season. The bright yellow bell-shaped flowers will last for months with careful pruning and care.
Primroses are a type of flowering plant that grows at the base of trees or close to moist soil. They have five petals and can be white, pink, yellow or blue. Primroses are dependent on the variety and require full sun or dappled shade. They bloom from March to April and require moist soil.
The most popular spring flowering planta for your garden this year is the pansy. They come in a wide range of colours from dark purple to bright yellow, and they flower from March until April. They require moist soil to thrive and grow well in dappled shade or full sun. They come in varieties depending on what colour you want: for example, there is a white variety that blooms earlier than other colours, but also there is a pink variety that blooms later than others.
