Flowers make a colorful impact on your landscape.You can save money by taking a few simple steps:
- Read labels carefully for full sun or shade tolerant plants. If the label says partial sun or shade do not plant in afternoon sun. A few hours of sun from noon-4:00 is enough to burn tender flower color. Our afternoon sun is should be regarded as full sun when planting flowers.
- Choose perennials – they come back year after year. Limit the size of your annual flower color beds by planting perennials as a backdrop. Lots of perennials attract butterflies and humming birds. Most bell shaped flowers attract hummingbirds.
- Create splashes of color for a more dramatic impact than a continuous hedge of flower color. Annual Flowers generally bloom from Spring until Fall. Fertilize once a month to encourage continuous blooms throughout the growing season. Plant annuals as a border in front of a perennial garden to create focal points in your landscape.
