Spring Blossom

As the days lengthen, our eyes instinctively start scanning the winter-battered landscape for signs of spring. That’s why every garden needs at least one early riser: somewhere cheerful to rest the eye whilst the rest of the garden pulls itself together. Magnolias and flowering cherries are the classic choice, and with so many varieties to choose from, selecting one is a pleasure. Here we recommend some of our favourite spring chickens, but don’t forget to browse treefinder for lots more inspiration!
