Add flowers to the garden, the shed, the balconies and the windows to decorate your outdoor space. With a bit of imagination, it's easy to create horticultural gems that will not only be pleasing to the eye, but will also meet your needs for this and next year's garden.
A well thought out plan is key for creating a blossoming garden!
First, you must determine the best location, the desired lot size (taking into account the time required for maintenance), the type of soil (sandy, clayey, good soil, etc.) and the exposure (sun or shade) needed.
Next, the most creative part of the project: plant layout! Flowers are mainly grown for their generous bloom and are available in a multitude of colors and varieties. The sky is the limit when it comes to making a selection, so remember to choose plants that are well suited to the soil in your garden. Be sure to choose plants that are well adapted to the soil. For example, some plants will bloom without problem in a calcareous soil, but won't in a clay soil.
Think of combining pastel colors like white and pink. You can easily create this arrangement with Daisies and Tulips. It is also possible to create contrasts more marked with yellow and blue, for example by planting Clematis or Blue lavender flowers.
Bright reds and yellows are very trendy; like Tsiniya flowers that offer both bright yellow and red colors. You can also create an arrangement using a single colour, such as purple Orchis mascula. If some combinations do not seem to be compatible, soften them up with white or grey.
Take advantage of various types of inflorescence, such as Racemes, Spikes, Umbels, Bunches and globular flowers.
