Daffodils announce the beginning of spring

  • They are one of the rare species of plants that are able to successfully grow through the snow.
  • Due to toxic sap in the stem, daffodil should not be kept in the vase with other plants.
  • Squirrels won’t eat daffodils due to these poisonous crystals — be careful to keep away from dogs, too.
  • There are at least 25 different daffodil species and up to 13,000 hybrids according to the Daffodil Data Bank.
  • Daffodils are surprisingly tolerant of cold, and they’re an ideal flower for novice gardeners

Plan ahead and buy yourself some daffodil bulbs, ready for planting in September. This will bring you beautiful flowers for next spring!

Watch as flowers start bursting into life!

All around you, signs of spring are starting to appear, may it be in your garden, a window flower box or even on your daily walk.

A fun activity for the kids is to get them out in the garden to take pictures of the different flowers they see. When they’re done, grab the nearest gardening book or hop on to the computer and find out which ones they have found.

You can also have a look and see which insects feed from them!

Spring is in the air

As the weather warms up bumble bees begin to emerge from their winter slumber. Dandelions are among the earliest Spring flowers and provide vital food for the bees. Please leave dandelions to flower as well as feeding the bees they are very pretty.
