Any gardener will know the great pleasure that growing flowers brings, and there’s no skill involved in planting outdoor flowers. All it takes is common sense and some basic knowledge of the needs of your plants in terms of soil, water, sunlight, position and food.





Where to Start when Planting Outdoor Flowers


Before you start planting outdoor flowers, you need a basic plan for your garden – whether you are starting from scratch or making improvements, or simply planting outdoor flowers for the new season.

When planting outdoor flowers remember some flowers grow better in shade than others, some need richer soil, and some need more water. So consider all these aspects before planting outdoor flowers.


Before you start planting outdoor flowers you also need to decide whether to grow them from seed, from seedlings or from cuttings. Some flowers are grown from bulbs. Planting outdoor flowers also entails choices in terms of cultivar and color, and whether to grow annuals, perennials or flowering shrubs.


Planting outdoor flowers isn’t difficult, but your soil must be properly prepared. If it is, then planting outdoor flowers will be supremely satisfying, especially if you can pick flowers for the vase.

Decide whether or not you will be planting outdoor flowers in the ground or in containers such as floor planters, hanging baskets, and flower boxes.
