You don’t have to be a professional or know everything about flower gardening when you are flower gardening. The most important thing to start is, knowing what you want! If you know what you want and you have the motivation to carry it out, then you can be very successful in flower gardening. Most gardeners think you should start by draw up a plan of the flower garden you want on paper, this idea is good but only if you can tell a daisy from a tulip. Once you have learned a few horticultural tricks and have discovered what attracts you, you’ll have a better idea about how you would like your garden to look. Once you have decided on what you want, you have to make sure you have everything you need and then you have a few more decisions to make.
First of all to start up you are going to need some gardening tools. Then the next step is to check your soil, because the soil is important for you to have nice long lasting vibrant plants. Most plants prefer moist, but well drained soil. This simply means, soil that absorbs moisture and drains it out in other words it doesn’t stay too wet. The ideal gardening soil should have the texture of a crumbly chocolate cake and should be easy to dig.
The next step is to decide whether you want annual flowers; which are flowers that only live for a season and you plant them every year, they don’t grow or spread very much, or perennials; which are flowers that go on living for years, they grow throughout the years, and some spread. Sunshine is also very important for flowers, so when you are choosing the flowers to plant, or choosing where to place them, you have to take into consideration what the plant prefers. For example sun loving plants will want at least six hours of sun a day, which means that if you place this plant in a shady area the plant is going to struggle, and shade plants will shrivel up if they are placed under the afternoon sun.
