Spring isn't spring without flair and colour from Tulips. Planting tulips is a job for the Autumn and the key for a good display is to check out flowering times as Tulips  flower early, mid and late spring. This lovely delicate flower is Fritillaria meleagris (Snake's head fritillary.) Flowering purple and white (alba) it is happy growing in damp conditions and looks good in a natural setting alongside a pond or stream. Spring blossom always lifts the spirits and hopefully, at the end of this unreasonably (or unseasonably?)  cold spell, spring will arrive and the blossom with it to provide the necessary cheer. Early flowering clematis are coming on board starting with armandii, followed by the delicate C.alpina (pauline  in the image)and macropetala and lastly  in May the robust C. montana. more information about growing clematis
