Welcome to the English Garden newsletter!
Now's the time to get yourself organised and think about which flowers you want to grow this year.
Perhaps you have already got a lovely patch of hardy perennials just waiting to come up, but how about planning a colourful patch of annuals.
Growing seeds is the cheapest way to get plants and also one of the most rewarding - there's nothing quite like tending a patch of seedlings coming up that you have sown!
Hardy annuals are easier to grow than half-hardy annuals and can be planted outside in March or April.
They give you quick results as they grow and flower in just one season why not try some - Calendula, Corncockle,Cosmia, Larkspur, Lavatera trimestris, Love-in-a Mist, Godetia, Nasturtium, or Night Scented Stocks.
Always try to get some scented plants in your selections - the perfume just brings out the beauty of the plants.Just mark out on the ground with sand a series of curves or ovals just interlocking a little bit. This will give you the basic outlines for your flower garden.
Make sure you have weeded the patch well and keep your eye on it in the weeks before you sow the seeds - if you sow the flower seeds in rows it will make it easier for you to spot the weeds - and don't worry when all the flowers forw the rows will just disappear!
