Bright Summer Garden: The Bet Flowers to Plant

We all love to have a gorgeous looking garden in the Summer with so many beautiful colours and sweet smelling scents from the flowers in our garden. Theres nothing better than people talking about your garden in a nice way!

It is worth noting that if you are planning to plant flowers for the Summer, there are other prerequisites you need to think about before you even start planting your trays.

One of the most important factors for growing flowers, plants, herbs or vegetables is your soil. If your soil does not contain the right nutrients in the right quantities, you are going to struggle to grow your desired plants and flower properly. A couple of things that you can add to your soil to make it more nutrient rich is horse muck and compost. Add these to your soil then turn over the muck and the compost over into your soil. Always check your soil drainage.

Understand exactly the area i which you live. Understand what the normal or average annual temperature is. Any experienced gardener will be able to help you with this. Your locate climate is really going to dictate what you can successfully grow and what you cannot. In the UK, because of the cold and frost, we tend to start all our growing in plant trays which we will keep in doors until the weather gets warmer.

When you do go to plant your baby plants from your trays to your garden you should have a good idea of your soil type. If you have a lot of clay in your garden, then lay half a foot deep with compost, place your bulbs then add another compost layer of the same depth.

Make sure you have a good understanding of the bulbs or seed you are planting. You will need to know the conditions that they grow in the best. If they require a lot of sunshine then obviously don’y plant them in the shade.
