With their elegant white flowers, the Peace Lily (Spathiphyllum) is a great choice for a houseplant and super easy to look after 🌿🌿😊

There are many varieties available, each with their own unique qualities, such as the size of the flowers and the size or shape of the leaves. All of them are lush, blooming plants, with a long life expectancy.

Preferring a reasonably warm room out of direct sunlight, the plants prefer a damp soil. Our recommendation is to add a large amount of water roughly once a week and add a feed to that water once a month.

Super easy to maintain, flowers will bloom for around four to ten weeks. This is followed by a rest period of a couple of weeks to create new buds. During the rest period, it's a good time to cut away the old (green) flowers, along with their stems. To aid in the flowering process, it may help to keep the plant temporarily drier and set it in a slightly cooler place.

Did you know that they are also known as the β€˜spoon’ or β€˜flag’ plant, and originate from Colombia and Venezuela? They were first introduced into Europe around 1870!

Camellias are one of the most popular spring-flowering shrubs, providing a vivid splash of colour when little else is in bloom.

Naturally occurring from the Himalayas to Japan and Indonesia, they are natives of deciduous woodland. The number of different types are often debated but its understood that there are up to 300 species, with around 3,000 cultivated hybrids.

Although they need acid soil, they are easy to grow in containers of ericaceous (acidic) potting compost, making them ideal for any garden. Collected rain water is ideal for watering but they can survive on tap water for a month or two in summer.

Feed them from spring to early summer with a slow release feed formulated for acid-loving plants and they'll keep rewarding you year on year.

Another national favourite, the distinctive colours of the Blue Tit make it one of the most recognisable garden visitors.

In winter, family flocks join up with other tits as they search for food. A regular visitor to most feeders, they prefer seeds and nuts but as temperatures drop, they'll also go for suet due to it's high energy content.

Once the warmth of spring arrives, they'll swap their diet to insects and caterpillars and become a valuable pest controller in the garden.

If you'd like to attract these and other birds to your garden, place feeders higher up in trees or in tall shrubs so as to offer perches and some protection from predators and they'll be constantly back all season long 🐦🐦🐦

Let’s hope they tighten restrictions and close garden centres. This is so wrong that they are open and encouraging people to visit for a day out.

Why not get a head-start on your new season potatoes?

Growing potatoes is an easy and rewarding way to get into veg gardening and doesn't take up a lot of room.

You'll need to 'chit' them first as this extends the growing period and leads to higher yields:

Place your potatoes in an empty egg box with the end that has the most eyes or buds uppermost.

Keep these in a cool, frost-free place with moderate light, such as an unheated room and avoid direct sunlight.

Sprouts will form within a few weeks and after about six weeks, shoots should be 5cm (2in) long and dark coloured.

Choose about four strong shoots and rub off the weaker shoots for early potatoes. There is no need to thin shoots for later crops

Plant up in mid-to late March in the ground or in a grow-sac and remember to 'earth up' regularly to increase your yields.

By growing early, mid and late season varieties you can enjoy fresh potatoes throughout the year!
