Planting flowers is a fun and fulfilling activity. It’s a meticulous task, but once you see your flowers bloom, it’s one of the most satisfying feelings ever. If you’ve been thinking about creating your own flower garden, the best time to start is now.
Here are some helpful guides to help you get started:
Pick Your Area
Check if you have any available space where you can grow your garden. Make sure that the sun exposure would be good enough and the soil would be healthy enough. It is also important that you pick a place where your flowers will be noticeable.
Prepare Your Area
It is important that you clear the turf in your area of choice so that the soil in your garden will be conducive for your flowers to grow in.
Nourish Your Soil
Make sure that your soil is fertilized. Buy organic matter and till it into the soil or place it on the surface so that the soil will be prepared for your flowers.
Make Sure that Your Soil is Moist Before You Dig It
It’s important that the soil is not too wet nor too dry when you dig it because it can ruin the soil’s structure and would be difficult for the flowers to penetrate. You will know if it’s moist enough if you can make a loose ball with your hand and once you drop it, it falls apart.
Choose Your Flowers
This is pretty easy. Sometimes, even before we make our flower garden, we already know what we like to plant. However, it would be smarter to ask your local florist or gardener first about which flowers would be appropriate for you to plant in your chosen area because each species has different needs when it comes to oxygen, sun exposure and soil nutrients.
If you have no idea how to do it, it’s better to ask your local florist on how to plant your flowers of choice. Most of the time, instructions come with your purchases but if in doubt, always ask the experts so that there would be no waste of life.
Water the Plants
Don’t forget to water them as much as they need to. Plants are not like humans or pets, but you need to make sure that they get enough nutrients for them to grow and bloom when it’s time.
Always make sure that you water them when needed, fertilize the soil and remove the weeds from time to time to ensure that your area is good for the flowers to grow.
A lot of people are getting hyped-up when starting a promising or an exciting project, but creating your flower garden is a commitment, so it’s better that you do not start it unless you’re ready to commit and be consistent in taking care of your flowers. These are living things that need to be taken care of in a constant manner. So if you think you can commit to this project, the best time to start is now.
