Spring 2024   Lets set up the landscape to flower and smell good with the following trees and shrubs:

The key is to get the landscape ready …that means taking into consideration soil conditions, such as nutrients, compaction and organic content.

It is fundamental to know how the landscape works such as shading, nearby shrubs, trees and hedges. Why, and how, you want the trees and shrubs.

Cherry Blossom (Prunus): Cherry trees, such as Prunus Serrulata (Japanese cherry) and Prunus Avium (wild cherry), produce breathtaking displays of pink or white blossoms in early spring. They are slow to grow but spectacular with great autumn leaf colour.


Magnolia: Famous for large, fragrant flowers that bloom in shades of white, pink, and purple early in spring. They prefer slightly acidic, well-draining soil.

Viburnum: Offers clusters of fragrant flowers in spring, often followed by berries in the autumn. Varieties like Viburnum tinus, Viburnum Bodnantense, and Viburnum Opulus are popular choices.

Lilac (Syringa): Deciduous shrubs known for their sweet fragrance and clusters of purple, pink, white, or blue flowers. They bloom in late spring and prefer neutral to slightly alkaline soil.

Weigela: Easy-to-grow shrubs that produce tubular flowers in shades of pink, red, or white, attracting pollinators. They thrive in full sun to partial shade.
