for all Seasons
Visiting a professionally-maintained garden is a breath-taking venture.
From the International Peace Gardens between North Dakota and Canada,
to Peter the Greatís garden in Tallin, Estonia, professionally grown
gardens gain world-wide attention. It seem throughout the year every
flower is in full-color bloom. But when you try to go home and put some
of those ideas into place in your own garden, they always seems to fall
flat. Your garden may look great for a few weeks and then things will
start to close and the entire landscape will look dirty and dingy. What
do those professionals have that you donít have as a hobbyist? Itís
knowledge, plain and simple. They understand that certain plants on
flower at certain types of the year. With some careful planning and
thorough information, they know what they need to do to have a flower
for all season.
Unfortunately, this article cannot list every flower that is available
every season. Every region around the world has plants that grow there
specifically. Vegetation becomes adjusted to the climate and generally
does not grow well when it goes through a climate change.
However, this article can point you towards the people who can help.
First, the Internet is a great source for all things flowering. Try
to look up what grows well in your area or state. Another great resource
for determining what flowers grow best in a particular climate is Internet
user groups Ė online communities of local growers. Try doing some Internet
searches to find gardening user groups and see what it takes to get
plugged in with them. Generally these groups are filled with helpful
people who love to give assistance to a novice. And though they are
getting fewer, you can also stop in to the local greenhouse and pick
the brains of the workers there. Many of them are the people who began
gardening as a hobby and have the practical knowledge of what grows
best in their areas.
Once you have the knowledge of what grows in your area and when it grows,
chart out the growth pattern using a calendar. Itís easy to time flowers
and know when they will bloom. Make sure that you buy a variety of plants
that bloom throughout the growing season. Also make sure to stagger
the various plants as well. You donít want the left hand side of your
garden in bloom one month while the right side is completely bare. Making
sure of locations and dates will ensure that you have a beautiful garden
straight through the growing season.
Once you are armed with the knowledge and the timing, itís time to do
what gardeners love to do. Get your hands in that dirt, prepare the
soil, and plant until your heart is content. Enjoy the fresh air and
light workout that you get from your constant movement. When youíre
finished, pull up an armchair, grab a glass of lemonade, and enjoy looking
at your hard work Ė all season long.
