Be ready for spring! It may still be cold outside so this is the perfect time to start planning your garden. We call this armchair gardening! Even if you are not sure what you want, from the comfort of your chair you can browse through catalogues and magazines for ideas. If you think this is too early – think again.
If you do not have a budget for a complete overhaul you can choose to have a garden plan drawn up professionally. A Garden Designer will be able to help you make the most of your garden. They really do have special talents together with experience and a know-how that the rest of us would love to have but don’t!
If you are thinking of having your garden redesigned this year, why don’t you call into our Garden Centre in Titchfield – just off Junction 9 of the M27. So easy peasy to get to. We have built a range of Show Gardens to give you ideas and inspiration. Each garden has features that you can incorporate into any style of garden – whether you have a town, country or traditional garden.
We try not to blow our own trumpet too much but Hambrooks have won more awards over the years than we care to mention!
Officially the start of Spring is in March; it varies slightly each year (between the 19th, 20th and 21st) depending of Leap Years and the Earth’s rotation around the Sun. However, when Spring actually starts in our gardens really depends on the weather; in recent years, we seem to have had some particularly cold snaps in early March have held everything back by a few weeks (and potentially damaged delicate blossoms, so be aware!).
Getting our gardens ready for Spring is mostly what the winter months are about. If you’d like a summary of the key jobs to do in your garden in January, February and March, click each month to read more.
