The first thing you need to do is learn a little bit about flowers in general. For example, you need to learn the difference between perennials and annuals. Unlike perennials which keep blooming year after year, annuals need to be replanted every year.
You need to carefully plan your flower garden. You must choose flowers that will grow well in your area. In order for your flowers t
o get the right amount of sun and shade, you need to plan your location carefully. You also need to be sure that your plants are getting the right amount of water.
Peat moss and compost should be added if your soil is sandy because sandy soil won’t hold moisture very well. If you have clay soil, you’ll have to add some sand and compost to encourage better drainage. Compost is very, very important for any garden. Besides providing nutrients, it also sets up ideal drainage condition.
Be sure not to plant your flowers to deep. The water might end up draining away before it can reach the plant’s roots if you plant your flowers too deeply. Flowers don’t do well if they’re planted too deeply.
Annuals and perennials should be planted together. Perennials will bloom every year. After a growth period during the spring and summer, they usually die during the winter, and they come back up the next spring.
Annuals bloom for a single season. Early, late, and mid-season bloomers are what perennials are grouped into. You can be sure to have blooms all year long if you plant a wide variety of these in your garden.
Every summer, it’s time to clip off dead blossoms. For annuals, this is very important. You need to clip off dead blooms if you want your annuals to bloom even more.
If you want good beneficial insects in your garden, you’re going to have to work for it. Not all insects are bad! Critical to flower gardens for pollination are beetles, bees, and butterflies. Your flowers won’t do very well without being pollinated!
Remember to plan your garden carefully from the start. Since it’s not possible to easily move your flowers around, planning right from the start is critical. You want to be sure to choose flowers in colors that complement each other. Grouping together white, blue, and purple is what you could learn to do.
