Many of us love having gardens that are full of flowers, herbs, ornamental shrubs, trees of different types and lushly growing grass. While we have the grass covering almost the entire garden with trees and shrubs planted here and there for shade and effect, we will definitely have our garden flowers growing in beds that have been prepared for them.
When we are planning a flower garden it is necessary to remember that some flowers grow for certain seasons only. For this reason you should decide how you want the many garden flowers to bloom. This means that you can plant a mix of annuals like Alyssum, Baby’s Breath, Snap Dragon’s, and Impatiens with some perennials.
These perennials can include flowers like Columbines, Daisies, Foxglove, Iris, and Lavender. These of course a just a few ways that you can have your garden flowers laid out in flower beds. Some gardens will have the garden flowers laid out in a colour scheme. For instance there will be flower beds that feature only purple coloured flowers like the Butterfly Bush.
Among the other purple flowers you can have climbing vines growing over an ornamental trellis. This way a flowering wisteria can add a dramatic background to your purple flower bed. For further effect you could mix the purple garden flowers with green and silver coloured foliage to highlight the effect these garden flowers have with the different colours that are around with them.
Your garden flowers don’t have to be confined to flower beds only. You can plant these flowers in large tubs where the various flowers will look good as they are mixed in a splash of colouring. There are some people who like to plant orchids in containers to give their garden’s an exotic and somewhat tropical look.
For gardens that are in southern warm climates it is entirely possible to have exotic flowers like parrots beak and monkey’s tail flowers as part of your garden flowers. These flowers can be mixed in with your ordinary garden flowers in a variety of styles to make your garden a place to relax in.
Sometimes people plant certain garden flowers with their herb and vegetable gardens as well. This is due to the fact that some of these flowers can be considered as edible plants. Begonias and nasturtiums are among the edible flowering plants. As these garden flowers are edible they are also great plants to let kids start their gardening desires with.
When you look at the many different garden flowers that you can buy for your home you also realize that having these garden flowers planted in your garden is also a great way to have vibrant colours blooming right throughout the year.
