Easy To Grow Flowers For The Flower Garden
You’ve worked hard to get your flower garden looking just the way you want it, providing bursts of color and visual interest throughout the year. Though some practical knowledge about a garden is always beneficial, even beginners can successfully grow a flower garden, if they choose some easy-to-grow flowers. Annuals and perennials are preferred as easy-to-grow flowers for a flower garden. While annuals are plants that complete their life cycle in a single season, perennials last for two or more years. Perennial plants grow and bloom during spring and summer, and lay dormant during autumn and winter. As annuals die every year, you have to purchase new plants in the next year. If you want to avoid that, go for annuals that are self-seeders. This means that, if you let self-seeder annual plants to grow seeds, the seeds will be released to the soil; and will grow as new plants, during the next growing season. In case of self-seeders, you should not deadhead the plants in the fall. Instead of that, allow them to grow seeds.
Unlike annuals that grow, bloom, and die in a single season or year; most of the perennial flowers bloom every season, and these plants live for two years or more. There are so many no-fuss perennials, that can be grown easily. Choose perennials with different flowering seasons, so that your garden has flowers all through the year.
