The 20 most stylish garden updates to welcome spring

Now that spring has finally arrived, bringing with it warmer weather and longer days, many of us will be turning our attentions towards how to enhance our gardens in order to make the most of it.

And, from sowing a meadow to clipping trees into shape, there are plenty of quick and easy jobs to tackle over the coming weeks.

Here, we have rounded up 20 of the best top tips on creating the perfect green oasis this season.

How to give your garden an update for spring 2022

1. Plant for pollinators

Seeing plants buzzing with bees and butterflies is one of the joys of spring and summer. Verbena bonariensis is a long-time wildlife garden favourite with its clusters of intense rich purple flowers and airy demeanour, but the shorter ‘Lollipop’ cultivar has the same attributes and provides a more understated alternative for the front of borders (crocus.co.uk).

2. Think big plants

Try some supersize perennials like Ferula communis – the giant fennel – as punctuation points (and talking points). The supersized perennial will have a starring role in Sarah Price’s garden at Chelsea this year. It has a froth of feathery leaves in spring (fantastic planted with swathes of purple alliums) followed by enormous yellow flower heads (bethchatto.co.uk).

3. Show off your pots

Whether it’s a cluster of pots artfully arranged on a plant theatre by the back door or a makeshift cabinet filled with auriculas or violas, mini collections of plants are a stylish way to display your favourite pots.
