Last weekend was officially the first day of spring and we are all looking forward to sunnier days. As the season changes we love to bring elements of the outdoors into our homes. With this season renowned for all the spring flowers in bloom, it’s such a simple way to lift your interior space.
From a simple bunch of Daffodils to a potted Hyacinth, they add a focal point to a room. Catching your attention with a joyful splash of colour and giving the sense of fresh and airy spaces. This spring we wanted to look at the basics covering the most asked questions from which spring flowers are in bloom, to growing tips and life expectancy.
What Flowers Bloom in Spring?
Snowdrops are some of the earliest spring flowers to bloom. They are small white flowers that give you the feeling of a meadow or field in the spring. If you want a trough of snowdrops in your home they clump together and should be kept in cool shaded areas. A North-facing windowsill would be the perfect spot, as too much sunlight will cause these flowers not to develop bulbs.
Possibly the most well-known spring flower, is the daffodil. It’s such a small but mighty flower with a bright yellow face. These flowers are so complimentary in a vase or jug on a dining table or work surface. These flowers can bloom in harsh conditions if you do want to plant them in your garden or a planter.
Hyacinths have a traditional appearance and come in a range of plush colours such as pink, purple and white. They look great within a pot display as they are neat and compact, perfect for Easter time on a coffee table. They are easy to grow with the correct preparation. Plant in moist but well-drained soil in a sunny spot.
One of the most popular spring flowers is the Tulip. Coming in such a large range of colours, they are such a cheerful but dramatic bunch of flowers to have in your home. Beautifully full in a vase they will set the tone for your window sill or table. They are in fact very easy to grow and will survive in the sun or part shade and a bonus for the UK, they best perform in places with cold winters.
