1. Tulips: Bursting with Color

2. David Austin Roses: A Touch of Romance

Ah, David Austin roses, where do I begin? These roses are like poetry in petal form, blending old-fashioned charm with modern-day beauty. With their exquisite fragrance and delicate, full blooms, they add an air of romance to any garden. So, plant them in a sunny spot with well-draining soil, and watch as they grace your garden with their elegant presence. From soft pinks to rich apricots, there’s a David Austin rose to suit every taste and color scheme.

3. Daffodils: Sunshine on a Stem

Next up, we have daffodils – the quintessential harbinger of spring. With their cheerful yellow petals and trumpet-shaped blooms, daffodils bring a ray of sunshine to any garden. They’re low-maintenance and deer-resistant, making them perfect for both beginner and seasoned gardeners alike. Plant them in clusters beneath trees or along garden paths for a delightful dose of springtime charm.

4. Crocuses: Early Bloomers

Looking to add a splash of color to your garden early in the season? Look no further than crocuses! These petite flowers are among the first to emerge from the ground, often peeking through the snow to signal the arrival of spring. Plant them in well-drained soil and watch as their delicate petals unfurl to reveal shades of purple, white, and yellow. Bonus: crocuses are a favorite of bees and other pollinators, making them an essential addition to any eco-conscious garden.

5. Tomatoes: A Taste of Summer

Last but certainly not least, we have tomatoes – the crown jewel of the summer garden. While technically not a flower, tomatoes deserve a spot on our spring planting list for their unrivaled flavor and versatility. Plant them in a sunny spot with nutrient-rich soil, and get ready to enjoy a bounty of juicy, vine-ripened tomatoes all summer long.

I personally love adding the cherry tomato variety to my garden every spring for their ease to grow and great taste! Whether you prefer slicing them up for sandwiches, tossing them into salads, or simply eating them straight off the vine, there’s nothing quite like the taste of homegrown tomatoes. Check out this awesome cherry tomato growing guide.

Whether you’re a seasoned gardener or just starting out, I hope these blooms inspire you to get out there and make the most of this gardening season. Happy planting!
