Make your balcony look like springtime – These flowers bloom in springtime
As soon as the sun starts to shine warmer and the snow disappears from gardens, parks and green spaces, this is a sign that spring is coming. Invite spring into your own four walls and make the balcony spring-like. Bulb plants are very well suited for the flower arrangements: grape hyacinths, hyacinths, tulips, crocuses, daffodils, pansies, flowers and primroses.
Make your balcony look like spring with bulbous plants
To create a nice mood on the balcony, choose flowers and plants that bloom at this time of the year. Colors like yellow, purple and white look beautiful and inviting. Here are some of the most beautiful types of flowers for spring:
Tulips – The variety of tulip varieties is very impressive. The Fosteriana tulips bloom as early as February. The Kaufmanniana tulips inspire us from March to April.
Crocuses – Here you can also choose from many varieties with different flower colors: from snow-white to cream-colored, yellow, purple, blue to orange. Some flowers are bicoloured or striped.
Daffodils are among the most popular flowers for spring decorations, especially small varieties with yellow flowers such as B. “Tête à Tête”, “February Gold”, “Carlton”.
Hyacinths impress with fragrant flowers in rainbow colors. These bulbous plants can also be planted in pots, baskets and other containers. Hyacinths in a glass are a great decoration idea for spring.
Grape hyacinth (Muscari sp.) – To create a beautiful floral arrangement, you can use classic grape hyacinths with blue flowers or the ‘Alba’ variety that blooms in white.
Chess flower (Fritillaria meleagris) is also an early bloomer. The colorful flower bells delight from the end of March to the beginning of May.
Spring compositions with onion plants
To plant window boxes in spring, you can use ready-made plants in pots, which can be bought at florists, supermarkets or gardening stores. However, if you want to grow the bulbous plants yourself, keep in mind that they still need to be planted in the fall and can be left outside in the winter. Only then do they bloom in spring!
Spring flowers look good both alone and in a group. You can plant a dozen hyacinths in a single container – for example, in a wide balcony box. Choose just one of your favorite colors or conjure up a multicolored arrangement of white, pink and purple flowers.
An interesting idea is a mixture of different spring flowers, e.g. B. hyacinths, daffodils and tulips in a balcony box or a wicker basket. Whether plants with flowers of the same color or in contrasting colors – the choice is yours. The yellow daffodils look great in combination with blue grape hyacinths.
Spring flowers on the balcony: primroses, pansies, daisies
In addition to the bulb flowers, the primroses are also perfect for the spring decoration of the balcony. Different varieties can be combined, for example pillow primrose (Primula vulgaris), carpet primrose (Primula juliae), rose primrose (Primula rosea) and ball primrose (Primula denticulata).
Garden pansies are also lovely flowers that we can use to make the balcony look like spring. They are hardy and can be planted in pots, wicker baskets, window boxes, bowls, and other containers with interesting shapes! The pansies come in a variety of sizes and colors of flowers.
Bellis perennis, also called Tausendschön and Massliebchen, blooms from March and shines with its play of colors. Whether in white, in different shades of pink or carmine red, the Tausendschön looks particularly good in combination with daffodils, pansies and tulips.
Herbs provide even more fresh green
Some impatient dream of planting herbs on the balcony. Why not? From March onwards, herbs such as rosemary, thyme, basil, sage, lemon balm or hyssop can be preferred on the windowsill. From April these can already be outside.
We do not recommend placing herbs you have bought (e.g. in supermarkets) in small pots on the balcony. It’s about basil, mint and coriander, for example, because these were grown in a warm greenhouse. In the fresh air, even a gust of wind will cause their leaves to curl up and dry out.
Lovers of vegetables can also look forward to the coming spring, because from March chives and spring onions are also allowed outside. There are also many types of lettuce that can be cultivated and harvested earlier.
