Any garden big or small requires a strong base, which in this case is the soil. Inserting good, fertile soil is probably the best thing you can do for a healthy garden. The more fertile the soil, the more healthy your plants will be. You can either buy fertile soil from a store or choose to cure the one that’s already present in your garden. However, it is important to note that not all soil is the same, but serve different flower types and/or gardening needs.
For example, flowers and vegetables require nutrient rich soil, while herb plants achieve healthy growth with compost free soil. After you’ve determined the type of soil that’s best for your flower garden, you can add an extra layer of protection in several ways. First, keep tillage and compacting of the soil to a bare minimum, use a mulch to prevent erosion and grow as much to cover any empty spaces to avoid any occurrences of erosion.
All flowers require different growing conditions so don’t attempt to guess what they are. If you’re buying your flowers from a nursery, pay careful attention to the instructions on the package or simply ask the experts at the nursery. When inserting seeds or plants into a flower bed, be sure not to smother them or plant them to deep in the soil. To determine the right amount of sunlight for your flowers, keep a track of the level of sunlight each area of your garden receives. If your garden is set completely in a shady area and one that receives a minimal amount of sunlight, it is best to find flowers that grow well in shady conditions.
