Spring flowers growing in a wooden box.

Create a colourful spring flowers box

I love spring, as it’s one of my favourite seasons! I so look forward to signs of spring appearing everywhere and then bringing those spring colours inside. This will not only bring colours to your home but what about a homemade surprise for your mum on Mother’s Day.

So let’s get started and create a colourful spring flowers box and a nice place to start is choosing the flowers you would like to use. I’ve made some suggestions using a theme of pink, white and purple below, you can choose spring flowering bulbs that you prefer. Plus your local garden centre will have loads of potted spring flowering bulbs to choose from.

What you’ll need

Colourful spring flower ideas

1. Hyacinth
Great for an upright spring flower and the fragrance is amazing. I would use the purple colour for the spring box.

2. Daffodils
For me rather than using the traditional yellow daffodils, I’ve used the white petal daffodils as part of my theme.

3. Tulips
My favourite spring flowering bulb and these delicate pink tulips are stunning.

4. Lily of the Valley
These elegant white flowers are great for adding something more dainty to the spring theme.

5. Snakes Head Fritillary
These fritillary remind me of Charles Rennie Mackintosh and what a lovely shade of purple too.

You’ll also need

  • A old tray or a crate box
  • Multi-purpose compost
  • Gravel
  • 8 Spring flowering bulbs in pots
  • Moss (optional)

Step 1
Take your old tray and give it a clean, soapy suds will do the job.

Step 2
Take some of gravel, not a lot and sprinkle on the bottom of the tray.

Step 3
Get your multi-purpose compost and another layer on top of your gravel, only fill near to the top of your tray.

Step 4
Now decide where you want your flowering bulbs to be, you can place them in their pots of top of the compost. When you have decided, take them carefully out of their pots and gently tease the roots and place in the soil.

Step 5
Add a little more compost around the bulbs and place another layer of gravel for decoration and to fill in any gaps. If you wish add some moss for decoration, just in a few places.

Step 6
Give it a good water and place where it will make people smile.
