Tour our Courtyard with Laurelle

March Blooms at Art's Nursery
I don’t know about you but the last few days of glorious weather has really lifted my spirits. There is something so optimistic about the early spring flowers that even when I am in a really rotten mood (it happens, believe me). I can’t help but feel a little bit better. Even cooler? If you spend a bit of time near some of those early blooms and see some of our early native pollinators!
Enjoy a walk through of the courtyard at Art's Nursery in Surrey and take in the spring colour that's happening here. We've got our hellebores of course, our daffodils! Baby daffodils are in colour and the fragrance of these hyacinths are heavenly. We've got our Iris coming up. They're absolutely gorgeous and check out this fritillaria. It looks like you have little baby checkers on the flowers. These are wonderful bulbs. You can buy them potted or in fall is when you can plant those.
We've got this gorgeous forsythia.This one's called show off and it grows 5 to 6 feet.It's a really stout, tidier version of our wild forsythia. Our purists are coming in. We've got our Bowles Mauve Wallflower coming in. Again, another fragrant perennial. Just beautiful and these euphorbias have just come in and these are new this is Miners Merlot and it's a beautiful burgundy and we've got our gorgeous Ascot Rainbow. Multicoloured euphorbia in at the nursery as well. It is just great spring colour, even though it's the new growth and the foliage. It's just quite colourful and a really nice touch of spring.
And of course, we've got our beautiful evergreen candy tuft, which can drape over walls or you can put in between stepping stones. They're just a fantastic plant to have in the garden. And of course, we've got our clipped boxwood if you really love that formal look to your garden or in planters. This clipped boxwood is great. And then the Camellias just make me smile look at the blooms and buds on these.
If life is feeling a bit heavy at the moment please come and visit and see some of the beautiful colours of spring. If you are not close by, take a walk in your local park or neighbourhood gardens and see some of the early signs that spring is just around the corner…unless you live in New Brunswick, like my parents in which case you might need to hang in there just a little bit longer, but you can plan this summers garden and not panic that your mail order seeds are a bit slow to arrive!
