Starting your Own Flower Garden

Flower GardenStarting a flower garden is something that a lot of gardeners enjoy as it is simple to setup and the end result is beautiful flowers you can use. For those that might think it’s hard to start a flower garden, my mother who has never done any type of gardening before in her life was able to start her own and had no issues what so ever and ended up with beautiful flowers that she shares with her friends.

When it comes to starting a flower garden, there are certain things that you will need to make sure you buy so they grow the way they should. One of the first things that you will need to buy of course is the flowerpots or containers with holes in them. The drainage holes are important so that your plants will not drown in water. You will also
need a potting mix that is known to be rich in nutrients. If you are thinking of just using the soil in your garden, this usually isn’t a very good idea especially if you will be hanging your pots, as this type of soil is too heavy. If the drainage holes in your pots are to big, you may need to buy a screen or use a coffee filter. When the holes are too big, there is a tendency for the soil to wash out, which is something you don’t want to happen.

For the flowers containers that you will use, it is important to remember that the choice of plant is important
when deciding on the right one for you. When it comes to flower container designs that you can chose from, there are 3 basic types you can choose from. The first type is called the single accent. In this design, you will fill your pot with only one type of flower or plant. The second type is what we call multi-color. As the name implies, you can mix
different varieties for added color and beauty. The third is the mixed type where you can mix different varieties that not only vary in color, but in height as well.

Once you have decided what flower you want to plant and the specific container design that you will use, it is time to start planting. Once finished, just make sure to regularly water your plants. You should usually water your plants
every 2 to 3 days but during summer time, you will need to water your plants more frequently.
