Spring blooming shrubs

Wonderful at the beginning of spring, these shrubs are among the first to celebrate spring in our gardens, balconies and terraces with their beautiful flowers.

They are often major players in our mixed hedges and shrub beds but are also planted, for the most part, as standalones, in pots and garden boxes.

Just click on each picture to read all the growing tips for each shrub that blooms in spring.
