Springtime Outdoor Flower Gardening For Beginners

A lot of people enjoy spring flower gardening.  This is a time of rebirth and renewal and spring flowers have a great way of showcasing this.  Plus, you will find a lot of great flowers to place within your spring flower garden.  Just keep these things in mind whenever you are purchasing spring bulbs for within your flower garden.  Of course, there are some other spring flower gardening tips that you will want to keep in mind as well.

Spring Flower Gardening – Knowing What Bulbs Are Available

There are a lot of different bulbs to choose from for in your spring flower gardens.  The most popular include crocus, tulip, narcissus and hyacinth.  You will want to plant these bulbs late in September or early in October before the ground freezes though.  This will allow them to be able to develop a strong root system before the first frost.

Spring Flower Gardening – Knowing Where To Plant Your Bulbs

The bulbs that you plant for your spring flower gardening should be planted somewhere that has good drainage, otherwise they will rot.  They will also need at least 6 hours of sunshine per day.  You will want to plant your spring garden flowers in loose, workable dirt.  This is why some people will add compost or peat moss whenever working with a new plot of land.

Spring Flower Gardening – Digging A Hole

Whenever you are going to dig a hole for your spring flower gardening, make sure to follow the directions on the bulb’s packaging.  Most of the bulbs that you will work with in your spring flower gardening will need to be planted 6 to 8 inches down in the ground.  However, it is a good idea to loosen the ground an additional 4 inches.  Now place your bulb in the ground with the pointy side up.  Pack the dirt firmly around it and water it thoroughly.

Spring Flower Gardening – Caring For Your New Flowers

You will find that there is very little care involved with spring flower gardening.  The flowers will need to be watered occasionally and covered with mulch whenever cold weather comes.  All it takes is a little water, sun and luck for your spring flower gardening to be successful.  At the end of your spring flower gardening project you will have some beautiful flowers to show for all your hard work.  So, go ahead and take the plunge into spring flower gardening this year.
