3 top plants for the spring…

At this time of year I am looking out for the first signs of the winter aconite (eranthis hyemalis). Plant in autumn for a heart-lifting breath of spring. Whilst it is too late to plant for this year- it is worth making a note to do so later. Shrubs can be planted now so my suggestions are below…

Shrubby honeysuckle (Lonicera fragrantissima) adds a welcome whiff of scent as well as pretty flowers

Perhaps my favourite shrub in the spring is the delightful Viburnum carlesii with balls of scented flowers that the long tailed tits in particular seem to enjoy..
