Know your soil

It is easy to sneak up on the sofa with some gardening books or you can search the internet to find pictures of the flowers you want to grow. But the old adage, "The right plant, the right place" is no more true than growing flowers. Before picking specific flowers, Alison Levy, of Blackberry Garden, advises:

“It is always good to know how the soil is in your garden. There are tests you can buy to see how acidic/alkaline it is, and you can also check if some of it can be squeezed into a ball to see if it is clay. Finding your soil type is part of the equation, but you need to keep in mind how much sun your flowers will receive and how much water they will need. In Carrot and Calendula, Ciar Byrne blogs about sustainable gardening. She says:

“I think it's important to determine which plants will grow well in your garden without much help ... even in dry patches, the plants do not need much watering. This year I am trying a few more Mediterranean plants, including lavender Angustifolia and Santolina somniferous. Alison Levy says the easiest way to find out what's thriving in your garden is to look at what's growing in the neighborhood gardens around you. This is not a silly test, but it will be a good guide for you.

Choose a color scheme

"Planting your garden is like decorating your house," says Carol of The Sunday Gardner, "planting in whatever style and color you like - whatever you want to see." You can choose maximum play or quiet harmony, but in both, here are some tips: Choose a style: "There are many styles to choose from, from cottage gardening to stylish lawn planting to architectural plants," says Carol. Find out which style you are most impressed with and keep everything in order.

Choose colors: Use the colors you like and feel like decorating a room in your home, says Carol. Nick Wilson's breathtaking color combination of doctrines could not exist without purple and orange. Calendula officinalis Nana's Citrus Cocktail 'or California Poppy' Sun Shades' Contrast Serine Major 'Performance's soft bellflowers are her favorite. These annual flowers last for months and are self-seeding in her garden, but are easy to remove in areas where other plants need them. Choose something over and over again: Carol says, "Whatever your style, it's a good rule of thumb to keep a theme and do it over and over again. Gives and avoids it from appearing bitter.

Choose the right flowers

Once you’ve figured out your soil type and situation, decided on the overall style, and chosen your colors, it’s time to think about specific flowers. The combination of annual and perennial fruits usually provides the most successful view, starting with the tallest on the back and the smallest on the front. Holly Taylor, T&M's Online Manager, says that in this way you will quickly zoning the flowers that will thrive in your garden. For the height at the back of your border, do not underestimate the value of plants that climb a fence, a truss, or a cliff, says The Sunday Gardner, Carol:

"There are many different types of climbing plants to choose from that provide a long flowering period. Only the Clematis group has a wide range of flower patterns and flowering times. There are also plants. Tropaeolum speciosum (Scottish Flame Thrower) creates a true color. Planting shrubs and perennials at your flower border will help provide structure throughout the year and reduce the amount of watering, feeding, and dead-heading needed during the growing season. Kill of the Edge Gardening suggests creating your dream boundary over time and cutting costs by using annual seeds wisely:

Vegetables - Cucumber  Tomato  

"While you wait for your shrubs and herbaceous perennials to be established on the newly planted border, you may have some gaps. Filling them up every year is the perfect solution! Growing from a variety of seeds is easy and quick and inexpensive and will provide you with a summer-lasting color carpet. M Cosmos, French marigold, Cornflowers, and love-in-the-mist are y favorites, but you have many to choose from: vibrant or subtle, tall or short, simple or outrageous, something that suits your garden. Do you like anniversaries to design a completely new scene every year? Mike of Flight's Plot knows how to get a long-term show for your money. It's easy: "Sow annual seeds in several places to extend the flowering season."

Keep your flowers in bloom

Perennial flowers are generally easy to grow and require little attention once they are installed. Annual flowers need a little more care - for the best shots you need to constantly feed and water, as well as remove faded flowers.

"Deadhead is an important part of my routine during the growing season, it helps to promote more flowers and helps most plants to be bushier. I do not use pesticides in the garden so I try to encourage wildlife that eats insects such as birds and ladybirds into the garden. I want to give, it will be healthy and happy. Planting your flowers close together will help reduce weeds and promote longer stems. If you are growing flowers for cutting, add interesting evergreen shrubs to give your flower arrangements and border structure in the center of the beds.

 Choose the best garden fence Most gardeners eventually have hot encounters with unwanted wildlife. The best and kindest solution is to get rid of them with the right kind of barrier.
