How to choose the flowers and plants for your garden

0

Choosing the flowers and plants that are going to form your garden is one of great satisfaction, it can offer both healthy and emotional benefit. You must take into account how much time you can dedicate to your garden. You must know well the hours of sun or shade that your garden will have. Does it have direct sun? How many hours of daily sun exposure does your garden have? What is the type of climate? What are the environmental conditions?

If you love flowers, choose between annual flowers, which will have to be planted every year, but which bloom almost all summer, or perennial flowers, which have a shorter flowering time, but are born again, without the need of a new plantation.

Here are some beautiful annuals to add color to your flower bed.

  • Cosmos
  • Geranium
  • Helenium
  • Marigold
  • Milkweed

Perennials you may also like to plant in your garden:

  • Alstroemeria
  • Bleeding Heart
  • Coneflower
  • Butterfly Bush
  • Hibiscus
  • Hydrangea
  • Iris
  • Lavender
  • Tulips

Limit the use of colors in your garden. Define two or three flower colors for your garden, and choose the plants that have those colors in their flowers for each season. Combine the flowers as you would combine the decoration of your own house. Warm colors such as yellow, orange, and red give the garden a welcoming appearance. Cold colors like blue, lilac or purple give the feeling that the garden is bigger.

Choose more than 3 copies of each plant and never plant a single plant of each species. In this way you can achieve elegant color combinations and avoid chaos in your garden design.

Consider the flowering times when planning your garden. Try to have a good mix of flowering dates to ensure they grow well throughout the season.

Enhance natural light. Make sure that the space has enough natural light, this is essential. If you have already decided what the space is, it is time that you know the ideal type of soil for each kind of plants and flowers that you want in your garden.

When to Water. Generally the best moment for watering your plants is either late in the evening or early in the morning. Water is a crucial element to any flower growth.
