One last winter push and spring will come soon.

The time has come for gardeners to plant summer flower bulbs and some vegetables.

But even if you are a beginner, we have tips on how to budget for your flowers.

Garden Grove: Keep an eye on your plants by creating a free My RHS account, courtesy of the Royal Horticultural Society, which offers reminders and care tips. Visit rhs.org.uk Blossom, a companion plant care app, is also free to set up.

Explicit price: Check out the clearance sections of stores such as B&Q, Argos, Robert Dyas and Toolstation for all your garden kits. This is the stock that retailers are phasing out, so you will often find a good price.

At the time of checking, B&Q was cleaning 1 kg Miracle-Gro Universal plant feed in £ 3.

Bulk purchase: Mix and match three packets of flowers at Dobbies and Notcutts Garden Centers for 12. Or buy three packs of seeds at B&M for two.

In Sainsbury’s, meanwhile, a box of 100 summer bulbs costs £ 10, as does your large stock of vegetables.

Don’t waste anything: Use an old milk jug for a cheap water jug ​​and drill a hole in the lid. Upcycle old tins and pots for the indoor planting stage.

Cover with egg shells, ground coffee and boiling pasta to strengthen the soil and help plant growth.

Glad to see them: Gladiolus can be planted in March, and Sainsbury’s sells a bag of 40 bulbs for £ 4.50 – or get 20 packs from Wilko for just £ 2.

Source of tomato: It’s time to sow your mini maker tomato seeds, or other varieties, for summer or autumn.

A pack of 100 seeds in Vulco averages 50p and comes with a guarantee of Wilco sprouting – if the seeds fail, the store will replace them.
