Spring is the perfect time to get out in the garden and ensure your backyard and front yard, for that matter, are bursting with colour and life. The best way to do this is to plant a range of spring flowers. Popular spring flowers include the sweet pea, allwood pinks, pansy, poppy, chrysanthemum and forget-me-not. We have gardening advice on a range of spring flowers including information on their soil and sunlight needs as well as the best pruning tips for spring flowers.
