A quick guide to planting flowers guides you on how to plant a beautiful flower garden, including plant purchase and soil preparation, and provides preparations and skills before planting and planting flowers. Learn how to build a beautiful physical store for annual and perennial flowers, especially suitable for beginners.
It’s best to grow flowers when there is no extreme heat or sunshine. Under cloudy conditions, if the weather forecasts rain, it is ideal. Most floral plants should be planted after the last frost date in your area. Flowering in spring is the most popular time, but perennials can also be planted in early autumn in the north and late autumn in the south.
Perennials can dazzle people from spring to autumn, and annual plants can almost instantly improve rapid flowering. You can also start with seeds, or purchase transplanted plants in a physical store, but once you have purchased your plants, there are some basic steps to make your flowers have a perfect start in your yard.
“The earth laughs in the flowers”. By planting flowers and plants, your home or physical store will become a joyous and bright place-this is the way for beautiful nature to express its happiness. Follow these steps to make your favorite place happy because of flowers.
HOW TO DO IT?
THE RIGHT PLANT, THE RIGHT PLANTING PLACE
Pick your place. Although flowers are usually very easy to grow, they are not easy to grow. Do you choose plants that love the sun, shade, or both? The first step is to arrange your plants in a place where they can get their favorite sunlight (plants that love the sun should be outdoors, and plants that need shade should be placed in a sheltered place).
Some flowers are difficult to grow in places with too much sun or too much shade. Learn more about what kind of sunlight is best for your flowers. If you want to plant a special plant, understand the plant’s sun exposure preferences, and choose your plot accordingly. You will most likely eventually want to pick an area with more or less sun than your original plot.
Full sunlight usually refers to direct exposure to the sun for more than 8 hours a day, which is not necessarily continuous. However, partial shade usually means 5-7 hours of sun per day. The definition of shade is not the same, the key lies in how deep shade is. For example, mottled shade gives more light than deep shade.
(How much effort are you willing to put in–then find a suitable plant, and you will have greater success in annual and perennial plants.)
HAVE THE BEST SOIL
Flowers are the same as most plants. Good soil is needed to grow healthy plants. Whether you are planting flowers in pots or gardens, good soil is essential. Find the best-potted flower culture medium for the flowers you plant, and then try to find the best location or potted flower combination for your flowers.
Whether you are planting perennials or annual plants, preparing the soil environment in advance will help your plants thrive. Annual plants are likely to be less picky about everyday life because they only exist for a year or so. However, the better the plant growth conditions, the better the plant performance.
Under normal circumstances, most flowering plants grow best in a soil environment that is loose, well-drained, and rich in organic matter.
2. Avoid excavating or processing the soil layer when the soil environment is wet and damp to avoid compaction.
3. The roots of plants must have a certain space between the soil layer particles before plants can grow.
4. One way to test whether the soil can work is to dig a small sample of the soil in a smaller hole. Then squeeze it into a ball, and finally throw the soil on a hard surface, such as a rock or a sidewalk. If the soil is kept together, it means that the soil is too wet for planting, but if the soil is broken, it can be planted.
5. Organic chicken manure fertilizer is milled and composted to give plants a balanced supply of fertilizer. Especially suitable for covering and retaining moisture!
6. It should not be too sandy, not too sticky, and there must be sufficient organic compounds to make it drain well and attract the roots of the plants-the key to the smooth planting of flowers, just like planting vegetables.
(You can also add some 10% slow-release all-around balanced granular fertilizer to the soil before planting.)
CHOOSING YOUR FLOWERS
Selecting the right plants for your flower garden is often a matter of preference, but with so many species and varieties available, it can be mind-boggling.
- Seeds or plants? Both annuals and perennials can be sown from seed directly in the garden, but it will take a while for them to sprout, develop and bloom — several weeks for annuals, up to a year for perennials. That’s why many gardeners start seeds indoors weeks before it’s warm enough to plant them outside. Or you can buy plants already sprouted. It’s better to buy plants that aren’t in bloom yet, though; you want them to do their blooming in your garden, not in the greenhouse.
- Consider the following when designing a garden: hardiness, color, fragrance, height, time of bloom, and size of the plant. Do you want to attract hummingbirds, butterflies, or songbirds? Or are you trying to create a work of beauty just for you?
- Look for short, stocky plants with few flowers and healthy, disease-free foliage. Avoid plants that are spindly, discolored, or wilted. Pay attention to the sun exposure guidelines for specific varieties of flowers. While the plants available from your local garden center are suitable for your climate, be sure that you select new plants that will thrive in the amount of sunlight that your garden bed receives.
- Read the tag for the watering requirements for the flowers. Some need water often, while others require it only infrequently. If you are getting multiple different species of flowers, try to choose ones with similar watering requirements.
You may also need to remove the head-cut off the dry petals to encourage the plant to bloom more. Perennials are not completely carefree-depending on the species and your climate and soil, they must also be partially watered and fertilized, but they don’t have as much attention as annual plants. Usually, the perennials that require the least maintenance are native plants.
Flower horticulture can be a joy; it can also be confusing. There are tens of thousands of plants to choose from so that there are more ways to combine them. Rome wasn’t built in a day. Start small and don’t worry about making mistakes. Next year you can move, remove, or dig out things that are not useful this year, and you can embrace things that are well done at will. You can find a garden design style and plants that make you happy, and discovering what it is will be unexpected happiness.
