Spring Blooms: What flowers grow in Spring?
T. S. Eliot once wrote ‘April is the cruellest month’. We couldn’t disagree more. Spring, with all its colourful blooms and fresh flowers, is one of the very best times to add some floral delights to your home or garden. In this article, we’ll take a look at a few of our favourite flowers that are at their best during Springtime. So – what flowers bloom in spring?
Tulips are rapidly becoming the nation’s favourite flower. It’s not a surprise either, when you see the wonderful range of colours that tulips display. If you’re looking for a beautiful arrangement packed with tulips for your home, you can’t go wrong with our luxury Scents of Spring bouquet. Looking for something a bit simpler? Our stunning Amsterdam Tulips will do the trick. Tulips are also straightforward to grow: simply plant the bulbs in autumn in good-quality soil and they’ll start to bloom in Spring.
Named after the lover of the Greek God Apollo, hyacinths are another stunning example of British Springtime flowers. These deeply colourful plants also emit a wonderful scent, making them perfect for adding some character to your home. Hyacinth bulbs can be easily cultivated too, producing big flower heads in various shades. Planted in a delightful rustic woven basket, our basket planter will cheer up your window sill this Spring.
Who doesn’t love daffodils? The first sign of Spring is a gorgeous array of the yellow blooms popping up in the garden. While daffodils can stick their heads up without cultivation in the wild, they’re super easy to look after when they’ve arrived. Be sure to take a look at our gorgeous Daffodil Bloom Bottle for the perfect yellow arrangement this season! Remember – daffodils are at their best when in direct sunlight and don’t like being in overly wet soil.
Popping up even earlier than daffodils, snowdrops are a calming first sign that winter is nearing its end. Snowdrops are wonderful wild Springtime flowers and grow in a wide variety of soil types. On your walks in the woods keep your eyes peeled for their unique bell-like white flower heads. They can even grow after it’s been snowing!
With the days brightening up, the sun sticking around for longer and the flowers starting to bloom, there’s no doubt that Spring is a florist’s favourite season of the year.
