Shirley Brohan from Blossoms on the Go provides the first tip for April.

We are now in a bask of fantastic colour I thinks it just wonderful to see all the different shrubs, perennials blooming.

The Aquilegia flower is just one example it is tall and thin with a bell like shape flower. Its commonly known as grannies bonnet – it’s the flower that keeps giving and comes in a few shades of pink and blues mostly, and it can self-seed.

Armeria, commonly known as sea thrift, is another example of a perennial that can self-seed. It’s a lovely pink/white flower, not too tall with flowers like mini balls good rockery and its evergreen.

Primula come in many forms – we have low growing ones and ones with a tall stem and a cluster of flowers these are primula elatior commonly known as cowslips and have a lovely scent and very pleasing to the eye.

So if you want a pop of colour and like he idea of them coming back next year above are only just a taste of what available in the perennial line call in to see the full range.

The ground is still a bit wet so many have started their vegetable garden in the tunnel and have transplanted into containers and these can be transfer out in another few weeks. If this sounds like something you would like to try here are some vegetables that are very successful grown in containers. Cabbage, Cauliflower, Broccoli, Onions, Strawberries, Tomatoes, and Peppers.

Most vegetable can be grown in container these are just some to name if you are unsure pop in and we help you choose.

Have a fantastic week.
