Bedding plants to brighten your garden in March

Bedding plants to brighten your garden in March

As the brisk winds of winter give way to the gentle breezes of spring, gardeners across the country turn their thoughts to the vibrant hues and lush greens that signify the return of life to their gardens. March is a pivotal month in the gardening calendar, a time to prepare, plan, and plant those early bloomers that will set the stage for the year's floral display. Bedding plants, with their variety of colours, sizes, and shapes, are the perfect choice to bring immediate life and colour to your garden beds, pots, and hanging baskets. Let's delve into some of Horticentre's favourites that promise to transform your garden into a spring spectacle.

Primroses: The Harbingers of Spring

One of the first flowers to bloom in spring, Primroses (Primula spp.) are a staple of early-season gardening. These hardy perennials offer a palette of colours, from bright yellows and whites to pinks and purples, lighting up any garden space with their cheerful blossoms. Ideal for borders, woodland gardens, or as underplanting for shrubs, Primroses thrive in moist, well-drained soil and partial shade, making them a versatile choice for British gardens.

Pansies: A Kaleidoscope of Colour

Pansies are beloved for their charming faces and wide range of colours and patterns. Hardy and easy to grow, they are perfect for adding a splash of colour to garden beds, containers, and window boxes during the cooler months. Planting Pansies in March allows them to establish themselves before the summer, ensuring a robust display of blooms that can last into the warmer months. With their ability to withstand a late frost, Pansies are an ideal choice for early spring planting.

Bellis Perennis: Dainty Daisies

Bellis perennis, commonly known as the English Daisy, is a delightful addition to any spring garden. These compact, rosette-forming perennials produce a profusion of quilled or pom-pom-like flowers in shades of pink, red, and white. They're excellent for borders, pots, and as a complement to other spring bloomers. Bellis prefers cool temperatures and partial shade, making them perfect for that early start in March.
