Garden Design Tips
Skip the florist and let your own skills do the talking. Whether you want to bring in a pop of pastels this spring or simply want to brush up on your knowledge of working with container plants in any month of the year, here are a few green thumb reminders.
- Deadheading promotes growth. This is the process of removing old flowers from plants. Do this regularly to speed up the renewal process and see faster growth of new buds.
- Choose the right potting mix. Choosing the wrong soil for your new plant can cause problems with root damage and moisture buildup. Make sure to research before buying.
- Pick the right combo of spring bulbs. While there are certain plants and flowers that won’t mix well in the same pot (two plants of similar nutrient needs may compete against each other), considering aesthetic is just as important. Contrast colors, like bright yellow with dark purple to create a dreamy landscape.
- Know when partial shade is needed. Some flowers (like daisies) require full sun, others part shade. Know the difference when planning out your garden design.
- Think about your climate. In most regions, spring is a time of cool weather. But if you’re in a year-round desert climate and this season sees higher temps, you’ll need to revise the usual recommended flowers for planting in spring.
- Make sure your pot has drainage holes. Watering your flowers, the water has to go somewhere or else the roots will drown. Make sure the bottom of your container has holes or a tray to let excess moisture out.
