How to create a springtime display

Spring display

At this time of year spring blooms such as Muscari and primroses can be removed from the soil to bring colour and joy to both your home and garden.

To help you get creative in the garden this weekend, Tina Barber, owner of Mulberry House garden, shares how she repots her perennials for a vibrant, springtime display.


Inspiration for your display
