Step 1: Plan your garden

This is super important for starting a flower garden, and a lot of people forget to do it. People often just plant things anywhere. When planning your flower garden these are things you need to consider so your flower garden will look amazing.

What to consider when planning your flower garden

  1. The color scheme, the flowers, and their colors should look harmonious
  2. When the flowers bloom, You will want the flowers to bloom at the same time, flowers that bloom year-round are available but there aren’t many. A flower garden won’t look to flash if everything is blooming at different times.
  3. If the flowers will come back the next year, some flowers, esp bulb flowers, tulips, and daffodils etc, multiply, some flowers die off and font come back, and some come back every year. You will need to make sure the flowers you are choosing come back year after year to keep your garden magical
  4. Sunlight, the area you are planning to make your flower garden should get at least 6 hours of full sunlight. Flowres love the sun.

Step 2: Improve Soil Quality

If you want your garden to really bloom, improve the soil quality. This can be done with compost. I have a beginner guide on making your own compost here. If you do not have time you can always just buy it from a local gardener or your local plant store

Step 3: Prepare the Soil for Planting

You want the soil to be soft, not hard. You also want the soil to be well draining to avoid over-watering. To prepare the soil, you can till or dig and turn. This is done with a spade or shovel. PS. The more worms you see the healthier your soil.

Step 4: Choose Easy Flowers to Grow for Beginners

If you want your first flower garden to be a success. Why not try growing flowers that are easy for beginners? Not every flower is straightforward to grow and some take more care than others, so starting with beginner-friendly flowers is a great way to start.

Step 5: Start Planting

Once your soil is prepared, you have designed and planned your garden, and you have chosen the flowers you want to plant, you are ready to start planting. Before you start planting, check your garden zones. Every area has a garden zone, which will let you know the appropriate information, like when to plant them

Step 6: Mulch for Protection

Mulch is a must, as it has many uses. It can protect the plant from frost by keeping the heat in. It also helps water drainage. Mulch is so cheap and easy to make, you would be a fool not to use it

Step 7: Don’t Forget to Water

Flowers need water like any other plant. The flowers you bought should come with care instructions letting you know how often to water them. Once the flowers are more mature you can be more lenient with watering.

Step 8: Make Sure to Weed

Weeds grow fast! Try weeding your garden once a week to stay on top of it and have your flower garden looking magical.
