FLOWERS FOR YOUR GARDEN
If you like to have a garden that is blooming all year round, then you should have knowledge about what kind of flower to plan in your garden. Let us have a look at different flowers that are good to plant in your garden.
Starting with spring, the flower that is best for your garden to plant is the daffodil.
Daffodils grow early in the year just as the earth warms up. In order to grow well, the bulbs need to be planted in late autumn. There are ten different kinds of daffodils to choose from, although they are not very durable and need to be handled with care.
Other than daffodils tulips are another colorful and great option for your garden. Tulips are gorgeous flowers, unfortunately, they are also a favorite of animals as well. It is a good idea to plant the bulbs of tulips and daffodils together because the daffodils will get rid of unwanted pests protecting the tulips. They come in every color of spring imaginable.
Continuing with the next season that is summer the following flowers are good options.
Cornflowers bring life to a wildflower summer garden. They stand tall and have a variety of colors that will remain through early autumn.
Delphiniums are a gorgeous tall bright purple, pink, and white flower. Due to their height, they make a great backdrop for any summer garden.
Gladiolas are another color choice, which has been hybridized for years. Therefore, they come in almost any color you would want to fill your garden with. They need a lot of water. The dryness that often comes with the summer months, can dry out many summer flowers, which make them more high maintenance.
After summer there comes autumn and what is good for autumn? Let’s have a look.
Dahlias are a great choice for fall because they last until the first frost. They grow best in full sun, but are often eaten by many insects and slugs; therefore, it is a good idea to plant other growth around it that might deter slugs and other insects.
Cosmos grow three to six feet tall blooming twice a year. They are resilient and survive in most climates. Once they bloom in the fall, they will last until the first frost.
Roses are another bush that blooms until the first frost. As long as you prune them well, they will flourish throughout the season. The great thing about roses is that there are many different kinds to choose from in a multitude of colors. The bushes need a lot of maintenance the first year, but after that, annual pruning will do wonders.
After autumn is over it’s time for winter to have its special flowers.
Snowdrop flowers are January's birth month flower and will often begin to grow at the end of winter right before spring comes. They usually precede daffodils and other summer flowers.
Winter Aconites are probably the easiest to grow in the winter because they need very little grooming. These yellow beauties will bring color to the drab winter months.
Poinsettia flowers are often thought of as a Christmas flower due to its ability to flourish during the winter months. You can keep your flowers indoors; it will live the best in cooler temperatures like 65-70 degrees.
Now that you have an idea what to grow for each season there are some flowers that are bloomed all year round.
Asters last throughout the year. They attract butterflies and are a great addition to any garden.
Chrysanthemums are one of the most common year-round flowers. They have thousands of species, which allows for a variety of colors. They are so popular that different colored chrysanthemums have different meanings and are often given as gifts to portray your feelings towards another: red means love, yellow means slighted love, white means loyal love.
