When it comes to getting a garden design bargain, we’re all a bit cannier than we used to be. Voucher website's are really popular, TV shows like SuperScrimpers get millions of viewers, and many of us wouldn’t dream of going out for a meal without checking for a deal first. So you won’t be surprised to hear that there are also lots of ways of saving money when it comes to plants. This time of year – early spring – is an especially good time for saving money. Here’s my 5 top tips:
• Split up snowdrops that have just finished flowering. This will give you even more flowers next year but cost you nothing! It’s easy to do - just dig up the whole clump, use your fingers to tease out groups of 6-8 bulbs with their green stems and leaves intact, and re-plant straightaway.
