The elegance of a garden depends on its flower’s color, type and motley. And it wouldn’t be all that lovely without the main artist, who is to manage these beauties. That is YOU, the gardener.
A garden can be compared to a painting, where the flowers and plants serve as the colours, the terrace as the canvass, and the gardener as the painter.
If you are a painter you picture the art and pick the colors to use to make the art alive, this is the same with beautifying your garden. You hold out the flower’s colors and choose a variety to plant so it will look vivacious.
Now, if you are a novice and you’re not sure on what colors to pick for your home garden, here are some tips that you can use as a start:
- Look for flowers with basic colors. Annual, biennials and perennial flowers could be your choices. .
- Check the lifespan of each type and make sure you match it with the weather so it won’t go to scourge.
- Perennial flowers are to live longer than biennial and annual flowers. It can exist for 20 years depending on plant type so it is usually regarded as the fundament of the garden. Don’t forget to plant your garden buds with this type. Examples of perennials are irises, peonies and daylilies.
- Another is the Annual flowers. If you are in a tight budget, you might want to get this type of flower because it’s easy to grow, it’s not expensive and it doesn’t have to be maintained. The only downside of this is its short lifecycle of just about one year and the cyclic process of replacing it every year. Examples of this type are dahlias, sunflowers and chrysanthemums.
- The last type is the Biennials. Its lifespan is in between the annual and perennial’s lifecycle, 2 years to be precise and it adapts to any growing state. Hollyhocks and Foxgloves are some of its example.
