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

GARDEN GURU: Keep track of your plants by creating a free My RHS account, courtesy of the Royal Horticultural Society, which provides care reminders and advice. visit The Blossom plant care companion app is also free to set up.

NET PRICE: Check out the sales departments of stores like B&Q, Argos, Robert Dyas, and Toolsstation to find your gardening needs. These are stocks that retailers are phasing out, so you often get a good price.

At the time of review, B&Q was selling 1 kg of Miracle-Gro all-purpose plant food for £3.

WHOLESALE PURCHASE: Mix and match three £12 flower packs at Dobbies and Notcutts Garden Centres. Or buy three packs of seeds for the price of two at B&M.

Meanwhile at Sainsbury’s, a box of 100 year old bulbs costs £10, as does a wholesale collection of vegetables that you can grow yourself.

NOTHING TO LOSE: Use an old milk carton and poke holes in the lid to get a cheap watering can. Use old jars and pots to grow plants indoors.

Keep eggshells, coffee grounds, and pasta water to enrich the soil and help plant growth.

STROKE TO SEE THEM: Gladiolus can be planted in March and Sainsbury’s sells a 40-bulb pack for £4.50 – or get a 20-bulb pack from Wilko for just £2.

TOMATOES SOURCE: There is still time to sow the seeds of Moneymaker tomatoes or other varieties for a summer or fall fruit harvest.

A bag with an average of 100 seeds costs 50p at Wilko and comes with Wilko’s Germination Guarantee – if the seeds aren’t good, the store will replace them.
