A simple way to create stunning eye-catching flowerbeds, borders or containers is to colour theme your planting. You can choose one colour and use different shades in that tone or contrast two colours for greater impact. If you have a bed to plant from scratch you could plant some bulbs, also in your chosen colour theme so that the colour runs from spring through to early autumn. Blue and yellow is a stunning combination. Research what plants need similar growing conditions to give you more chance of success.
Get your colour theme started in or just for spring with Scillia and daffodils – the hopeful heralding of spring is easy to achieve with some planning. Plant your bulbs autumn.
