One of the easiest ways to insure that your flower garden lasts through a wet weather is to plant your preferred flower species in the exact same pot as your other assorted flowers. And one of the earliest perennial plants for containers is the blue-skunk tree blight. Growing flowers is a delightful experience, but sometimes it also takes a little know how to go about and ensure that your flower garden blooms the way you desire. In this article I present some simple guidelines on how to care for your lovely flower garden after rain. These flower garden care guidelines will not only help you plant your favorite flowers, they will also help you to rest assured knowing that you are planting the healthiest flowers in your yard.
Every garden needs a soil that is rich in nutrients and bacteria. It must also be free of weed seeds. If your soil is both rich in nutrients and weed-free, your flowers will thrive. The best time of year to start planting your flower garden is late fall or early spring, which assures the best growing conditions. Once you have chosen your plantings, you must water them daily with a light till water, and keep your eye on the weather forecast. Soil that lacks water will dry out and cause your plants to wilt.
A smart person, who wants to make sure that he plants his preferred flowering shrubs in the location where they will thrive should not forget to prepare the soil for planting by digging a hole of adequate depth, and filling with dirt. This preparation allows air to permeate the ground, and moisture to evaporate. Once you have filled the hole, you can now put in your plantings. But before that, you should test the soil to make sure it is firm, by tilling a small amount of it out. If the dirt holds its shape when you pluck your flowers, the soil is ready for planting.
Another factor that one should consider while planting a flower garden is the season. During spring, it is wise to plant colorful annuals, perennials and biennials, while the fall can be the time for planting most trees and shrubs. In fact, spring is the perfect time to start pruning your flower garden to maintain the desired shape. The planting time of your chosen flowers should coincide with the bloom time of your plants, else they may have to struggle to survive.
Watering is another factor that you should keep in mind while planting your flowers. If you follow normal watering methods, then you will have absolutely no problem watering your flowers. You should however be careful not to water your plants so excessively that they wither or become weak. Do not let excess water stand on the roots as it may also be detrimental to the growth of your flowers.
On the other hand, if you let the water stand on the roots long enough, the root rot might occur and your flowers would soon be dead. The best way to check whether the soil is dry enough is to put a few drops of water in a cup and then drop the flowers into it. If they float and stay on the surface without sinking into the soil, it means the soil is fine. If the water sinks deep into the soil, it is time to water the flowers deeply. It is advisable to water your flower garden very often, even after the weather has warmed up. This will help you ensure the survival of your flowers and help them grow properly.
One important thing to remember when planting a flower garden in such circumstances is that you should plant the flowers deep down and not directly onto the ground. Even if the ground is wet, the roots of the plant will not be damaged by the water. However, direct sunlight is a different matter altogether. Sunlight can heat up the soil and cause the roots to rot. For this reason, it is better to plant flowers close to structures like walls so that they do not have to fight for the moisture.
When you are ready to plant the flowers in your flower garden, there are a few other things that you should keep in mind. One is that you should only plant the flowers after the rainfall and not before it. This is because there may be some water left on the soil which can damage the roots of the flower. Moreover, you should not plant the flowers close to each other as the strong wind may blow the pollen from the flower onto the other flower. Thus, it is important to make sure that the flower is planted in the open where there is no chance of damaging its roots.
