It provides an iconic image of spring, with its gorgeous, golden-yellow flowers that look spectacular when allowed to naturalise and form large drifts. Plant plenty of them so you can pick some for the vase too.

  • Garden care: Plant 10-15cm (4-6in) deep from late summer to early autumn. After flowering feed with a balanced fertiliser, dead-head and allow the leaves to die back naturally before removing them.
