For those who do not have a green thumb, adding flowers to a landscape can be nothing short of challenging. But, in order to succeed, you do not have to know many details. Instead, you need a few basic instructions and a basic idea of how it all works. From this basic knowledge, you can have beautiful flowers year and year again. Can you invest some time in learning this? If you can, and are willing, you’ll learn how flowers can be easy to handle and grow.
First off, there are several different types of flowers. There are two basic ideas to remember here. Those that are called annuals will only last one year, in the season that you plant them. Perennials will come back year after year as long as they have enough stored nutrients for winter. From here, you can decide which flowers you would like to have in your garden. Start with simple, already grown flowers. You’ll find hundreds of varieties available. Choose those that you enjoy. Before purchasing though, take a look at the tag.
The tag that comes with flowers can offer you a wealth of information. For example, it will tell you what amount of sun the flowers prefer. Some will like full sun (sun for most of the day), full shade (shaded most of the day), or a partial mix. Will the location you plant the flowers be in the right amount of sun? The tags will also tell you when to plant the flowers. Usually, if you are in a good store, they will not sell you plants that can’t be transported during that season.
Even still, you will need to prepare your soil with a good quality of nutrients. You can test this with a simple tester found at your local garden shop. Or, you can simply purchase garden soil for the flowers that has the nutrients needed. Again, go back to the tag and see the frequency of when the flowers need to be watered and fed.
You can take these simple things and create a beautiful flower garden. You can learn more about the specific flowers you enjoy online if you like as well. Whatever you do, if you take the time to choose your flowers wisely, and add them to your garden with care, you’ll have many beneficial weeks of beauty from them.
