                                Flower Garden

Growing flowers is the most fun and artistic part of gardening. Flowers can grow from seeds, bulbs or tubers. Seeds, bulbs and tubers are the building blocks of a flower.

 

 

 

    You can choose a style or make an eclectic mixed garden. You can choose a theme or color scheme for your garden too. You can build hardscape structures, like paths, fences and statues, add bushes and trees or can simply let your flowers define your garden. You can even mix your vegetables and herbs into your flower garden or put your flowers into your vegetable garden. A flower garden can be entirely in pots or in your yard or both. Flowers bloom in different seasons. You can choose to have Spring,Summer, Fall, or Winter gardens in different parts of your yard or you can have an all-season garden with different flowers blooming all year round.   

 

 

       

Seeds, Bulbs and Tubers

Seeds can be tiny, small, medium and large.Bulbs and tubers are much larger and usually planted in the spring or fall, depending on when the flower blooms. Water, sunlight, oxygen and the nutrients in the soil activate and help the flowers grow.

 

 

 

 Perrenials, annuals and biannuals

      Perrennials come back every year. Annuals only bloom one time. Biannuals grow and bloom in two years. Some Annuals and Biannuals self-seed, which means that their seeds fall to the ground and start growing again.

Styles of Gardens

Themes 

     When you choose a theme or color scheme for your garden your garden becomes very unique. Anything that you love can become your garden's theme. You can put painted rocks, custom signs, garden ornaments and figurines to express your love of cars, birds, horses, dolls, houses, lighthouses and many more things.  

 Color schemes

Your garden will have colors, but it can look very special if you choose to plant only flowers of one, two, three or more colors. You can even have an all green garden. The most dramatic color in the garden is white.
