Are you thinking of buying more plants for your UK garden? Let me show you what’s in bloom in February in our garden. Hopefully this article will give you an idea of what plants can be in flower this month. Since lots of them are bulbs you really need to be prepared back in August and September when the bulbs arrive in the shops. Otherwise you can buy potted bulbs at this time of year which are a bit more expensive.
