How to make the floral most of this time of the year
A riot of colours greeting us every day is something that we all look forward to. Winter is that time of the year that brings colours to our homes in the form of blooms. We love to spend this time outdoors so why not potter around the garden, rearing winter florals soaking in the sun and stocking up on Vitamin D. Global warming and climate change has certainly appeared to have shifted the winter months but has certainly not had an effect on the varied winter blooms that brighten our days. In the few remaining winter days, let’s fill our gardens with flowers that are colourful, fragrant and exude the joy of life.
Let’s have a look at what we can do with the winter blooms to add to our style and make a personal statement. They can be raised from the seeds, grow, bloom, seed and exhaust themselves during a season.
These winter blooms have the advantage of coming in a tremendous variety of colours, size and form. They occupy the garden space in less time and can be easily replaced. Winter blooms can be grown in beds, herbaceous borders, as an edging, for window boxes, pots and more.
