Spring Planting Ideas

These combos kick off the new season with color and charm

Fine Gardening - Issue 162

Spring is a magical time. Our winter-weary spirits lift as hints of green begin to appear. We notice even the smallest patches of snowdrops and crocuses as we drive by at 55 miles per hour. The first daffodil sighting is a thrill, and tulips are almost too colorful to bear. The pale chartreuse haze in the trees seems to change to lush, vibrant green overnight, and every new sprout brings delight. It’s the start of another exciting season, and the potential and possibilities for our gardens seem boundless.

If you revel in springtime and think of it as more than just a time to plant, you’ll love these combos that kick off the season in style. They’ll lure you outside as soon as the mercury starts to rise, get your blood pumping, and keep you company as you start to plan and plant.
