Yes sow seeds indoors.....cosmos,,cornflowers, etc.  I don't grow many annuals to advise but I'm sure plenty will add their suggestions

Aym, you know you will need another variety, don't you?  

I would not feed if they are that small but a high potash fertiliser/tomato fertiliser will help

Peter, anything that contains soil will be suitable for blueberries but use john innes ericaceous soil not ericaceous compost.  2 tyres would do but 3 better for long term growth. 

spend a bit more on your bushes too...don't go for tiny cheap plants.  Check out Trehane blueberries online for compatable varieties...2 for pollination.

how about getting your lawn in good heart first?  A simple feed will do the trick and make a heck of a difference 

As I said before, I think putting in annuals for lots of colour this summer would give you time to consider a shrub or two and a climber or two there.  

assess  your soil too witb a ph test to find out if it is acid or alkaline. is your soil heavy or light?  It all helps us give you ideas about plants suitable for you 

in your front garden lavendar fits in well with a formal garden as well as providing loads of summer colour and scent.

Natalie, lilies will continue the colour into mid summer after your daffs etc have gone over. nice bright foliage too.  Check out the Regal lilies....they are white and heavily scented.

can you post a picture of your garden?

for economy and to gve you time to consider what you want to do with your garden why not go for annuals this spring and summer?  Ypu can sow seeds or visit garden centres or nurseries for ideas
