Check out your local nursery.
The first step to making a wonderful flower garden is to visit the plant nursery store nearest you. Peruse the shelves and benches to see what plants interest you. Be sure to speak with the plant nursery staff for their recommendations of plants for your garden. The staff should know what grows well in your climate and what kind of care each plant requires. Remember to listen to what the staff says to make your selections of perennial plants to take home.
While in the nursery, pick up the tools you need to take care of the plants you purchased. Among these tools, remember to grab trowels and shovels for digging and gloves for weeding. If the staff told you that some of your plants would require pruning, now is also an excellent time to pick those garden sheers. Do not forget to grab fertilizer and other soil enrichment products too.
Once you have selected your plants and bought your tools and supplies, it is time to start digging. First, add the soil enrichment products to the soil before you plant your flowers. This step breaks up the soil making it easier for the plants to start strong. Next, plant your plants. Remember to allow each plant room to grow as you plant each one. Over time, perennials keep coming back season after season, reducing the bare spots between each plant. Then add some fertilizer and water.
After you have planted your flower garden, You will need to water it regularly. In keeping with the advice given when you buy your plants, take care of the flowers in your garden. Some perennials like bushes and trees will need to be pruned in addition to watering and weeding. If these things are true of your plants, remember to allow time to do those chores at the proper times as well.
