These are the shrubs and plants that flower in the spring – flowering usually during the the months of March, April or May.
A gorgeous spring flower and an inspirational quote.
After the deluge the sun came out! Everything was weighed down from the rain, including the Rowan tree with its masses of berries which are ripening fast and it’s still only July!
The Sorbus is also known as mountain ash as well as Rowan and in English folklore is said to have magical properties and gives protection against witches.
Nigella is a popular cottage garden plant, which self-seeds prolifically. They are usually blue, white or pink, but cross-pollination will give you some interesting combinations. With its airy foliage surrounding the flower, you can see why this flower gets the name ‘Love in a Mist’. Don’t dead-head the flowers when they have finished flowering, as the seed heads are beautiful in their own way, plus you will get lots more plants for free next year!
