Tips On How To Choose Garden Flowers
Are you starting your first garden? That’s great! A nice patch of garden flowers can be both soothing and stunning at the same time. Aside from choosing the actual garden layout and the materials you would need to plant the garden, you would need to choose your garden flowers carefully. Technically, you can plant away all you want.
This is your garden after all. However, a carefully structured area with complementing or contrasting layout of garden flowers can really get you that envy-inspiring patch of land… even if you only have a very limited space to work with. Here are some tips on how you can do that.
1. Work with the blooms that you see growing commonly in your area. Exotic flowers may be wonderful to look at, but these are very difficult to grow given any circumstances. Try to find out which of the native blooms you can actually plant on your patch of land, and start from there. Native flowering plants are the ones best suited to the kind of soil you already have and the type of climate in your area.
2. There are garden flowers that bloom year round and there are those that usually bloom at different times of the year. By combining the year round plants and the seasonal plants, you can almost be assured of a healthy flower garden at all times.
3. Work within a certain theme. This brings about a whole new dynamism to your patch of land. You can either have a native bloom garden; a one-color garden (e.g. white flowering plants only, or different shades of red blooms only); a contrasting garden (sharp contrasting colors when it comes to blooms); or a complementing garden (blooms are arranged according to the standard hues of the color wheel.)
