The best of British flowers for summer, by five top florists - Telegraph. Even if you've just got a window box, there's still something you can do to help the bees and the butterflies.

The sun is out, the birds are singing and my thumb is getting greener by the day. It has been absolutely gorgeous the past few days and I have been using any excuse to be outside and stay outside. We are in the middle of landscaping and building raised garden beds in our backyard which I am soooo excited to start planting in, but until then, my small pots and hanging baskets will have to do. Now that frosty mornings are behind us and 25 degree weather is ahead of us, it’s time to start planting. For a basic rule of thumb when planting pots use a thriller, a spiller and a filler. The thriller will be your tallest plant that establishes the height of your arrangement. The spiller which will climb over and down the side of your container and one or two filler plants will do just that, fill in the spaces. These three types of plants will create an interesting arrangement that’s sure to get attention. When potting a larger container, if you want to save on the amount of soil, fill the container first with packing peanuts, rocks or even empty pop cans. Then top with potting soil and you are ready to start creating!

These are some of my favorite picks for gorgeous spring plants and creative containers! Happy planting!
