“It's spring fever. That is what the name of it is. And when you've got it, you want—oh, you don't quite know what it is you do want, but it just fairly makes your heart ache, you want it so!”
- Mark Twain

As the days lengthen, our eyes instinctively start scanning the winter-battered landscape for signs of spring. That’s why every garden needs at least one early riser: somewhere cheerful to rest the eye whilst the garden pulls itself together. Magnolias and flowering cherries are the classic choice, and with so many varieties to choose from, selecting one is a pleasure. we recommend twelve of our favourite spring chickens, but don’t forget to browse treefinder for lots more inspiration!
