  • - flower seeds;
  • - flower seedlings;
  • - plan the planting.
Draw a sketch of the flower bed on the sheet of paper and shall describe next a detailed plan. What is the illuminance of the place, what's the soil composition and humidity. Then think about flowering time of the flower beds. You can pick up the seed so that it blossomed all at one time or succeeded each other during the whole summer season.
Make a bed so that it was not empty. Flowers that bloom for one or two weeks, plant among those plants that bloom after them. This will close the free space, leaving no bald spots. Then you won't need to constantly dig the flower garden.
When selecting flowers for flower beds pay attention to their compatibility. Because some beautiful flora can inhibit or completely destroy other representatives.
Consider the color scheme of flower beds. It can be monochrome if you pick up close by coloring flowers, or colored when the flowers will be planted in a certain order, making a premeditated pattern. Flowers of cold colors are the perfect backdrop for one or two accent plants.
Place the flowers in the flower bed depending on the shape of the flower bed. For square or rectangular flower bed make a pattern of geometric patterns or waves. The circular flowerbed planted plants in a spiral or circles. You can make bright rays from the center.
Try to avoid too colorful and fine pattern on the bed, if this does not imply a specially chosen pattern that will fit into the surrounding landscape.
Calculate the height of the plants in the flowerbed. To front squat to plant the plants, and the closer to the center, the flowers can be higher. On the edge of the flower beds can be planted creeping species.
Try to plant plants so that they were not closely in the same bed. They will grow and survive each other, and your bed will lose a well-groomed appearance.
