My Top 10 spring flowers to brighten your month

This month, say hello to sunshine with brilliant new season blooms. Read on to discover 10 spring flowers that are sure to brighten your day

As we say goodbye to the cooler winter months and welcome a new season, it’s the ideal time to enhance your interiors with flowers. March signals the start of spring and the perfect excuse to invest in blooms that will brighten your home. With so many varieties available - in a range of vivid colours - you’re sure to find a new favourite.

1. Tulips

If you’re looking for a bloom that will instantly illuminate your space, I will always recommend tulips. These are readily available and offer a wide variety of colours to suit every taste and mood. There are many tips and tricks that people employ to help their tulips stand tall, ranging from piercing holes in their stems to popping a copper coin in the vase, but personally, I like to let them do their thing, twisting and turning as they reach for the sunlight.


2. Muscari

Muscari are also known as grape hyacinths and they’re a particularly delicate spring flower. I think their tiny flower spears are uniquely charming, whether you choose a variety with white petals or blue. At this time of year, I tend to pot my muscari bulbs up in a ceramic bowl or rattan basket and wait for them to emerge.

3. Daffodils

With the National Day of Wales - St David’s Day - celebrated on the 1st of March, daffodils start popping up at almost every supermarket as soon as spring starts. They’re also one of the most affordable seasonal blooms – often offered for just £1 – and offer a brilliantly bright shot of sunshine yellow that is sure to lift your mood.


4. Hyacinths

Whether displayed as bulbs in a planter or freshly cut, chunky hyacinth stems are a statement spring flower. When in full bloom, they feature densely clustered star-shaped flowers that have the most incredible fragrance! While there are several colour varieties to choose from, white, pink, and purple are my favourites.

5. Blossom

When I think of spring, blossom is one of the first things that comes to mind. Blackthorn, hawthorn, and cherry blossoms all start blooming in March – they appear fleetingly but are always beautiful. If you’re fortunate enough to have a tree in your garden, snip a few stems and display them indoors while you can. I love to create an arrangement of different blossom branches in a large white ceramic vase.


6. Ranunculus

Ranunculus are one of my favourite spring blooms. They’re similar to peonies and provide plenty of visual intrigue thanks to their stunning layered petals, which are so delicate they look like precious origami.

7. Anemones

When you’re coming out of the winter months and looking forward to a refreshing spring, reach for anemones. This spring bloom symbolises relaxation and has large round petals that are stunningly pure and pristine.


8. Hellebores

Hellebores are effortlessly elegant with clustered petals in shades of green, white, pink, plum, and burgundy. I particularly love the double variety. The Hellebore plant is a great hardy pick for your garden, but once you cut its stems, it can be a little tricky to stop them from wilting. Check out my top tips here to help you keep your stems hydrated for as long as possible.

9. Forsythia

Forsythia are tall woody stems that come with a generous scattering of small yellow flowers. Their vibrant colour means that you need just a few stems to make a stunning arrangement that will brighten your day. Stack a selection of stems in your favourite vase and display it somewhere where it’s sure to catch your eye.


10. Mimosa

Mimosa are like a mini ray of sunshine. Their bright yellow flowers are said to symbolise sensitivity and safety, which means they are often connected with International Women’s Day, which takes place on the 8th of March. I love styling these throughout spring either en masse or as a wreath for our door.
