If you only do one thing in your garden this month, you should buy and plant very early spring-flowering bulbs.
This includes crocuses (), scilla () and grape hyacinths (). The bulbs are small and easy to plant, so go somewhere between 30 and 50 seeds. Simply use a trowel to dig the holes and plant at a depth of about 10 centimeters.
Be sure to choose the position carefully, in sun or shade, but somewhere they can shine and bring life to the garden on the dullest of .
Meanwhile, don't neglect your dahlias, which will bloom until the first frosts. If you cut them regularly – try not to let them turn to seed – the plant will keep flowering.
