Perennial plants make wonderful flower gardens for many reasons, states Tammy Sons from Tn Nursery, a leading supplier in Tennessee. The first is that perennials are perennials, lasting season after season with proper care. How then does one then make a wonderful flower garden out of them? Wonderful flower gardens are made step by step.

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.

Taking steps to build that garden from the start will help make that flower garden easier to establish.

Daffodil Plant - TN Nursery

Daffodil Plant

The Daffodil Plant is a Spring-blooming, trumpet-shaped flower characterized by its vibrant yellow or white petals and central trumpet-like corona. It adds a burst of color to gardens and landscapes. The plant's vibrant colors, from sunny yellows to pastel lemon, create striking visual displays that brighten any outdoor area. Daffodils are famous for being yellow, but there are all kinds of other colors, as well, including white, orange, and even pink. They also feature varieties with more than one of these colors. Therefore, they can form a splendid and colorful swash throughout any garden. They have adorned gardens for thousands of years. Indeed, the Greek name is Narcissus. Currently, it's the national flower of Wales. They've been harbingers of the coming of spring throughout their existence, and because they're perennials, each plant does the same for many years throughout its life cycle. They'll anchor your garden through spring and summer as long-lasting blooms, drawing people's gaze to their grace and beauty. The Blooming Trumpet The Daffodil Plant Before they bloom, the trumpet of the mature bloom is covered in a waxy shell called a spathe. The spathe is delicate and reflects the entire light spectrum when covered in morning dew. Not every daffodil forms a trumpet, however. They form two kinds of cups: charming double blooms and what's known as the jonquil, which is a beautiful two-toned bloom. Generally, there are two kinds of jonquils: one with primarily white petals and yellow accents and one that's the opposite. Such flowers that sport two exquisite colors can act as a transition between sections of the garden. The Daffodil Plant Can Reach 3 Feet Tall They can grow almost to 3 feet tall and a foot wide. Their mature leaves are tall and straight and only sag toward the end of the growing season at the beginning of August. They last more than a month through the heart of the summer, lending their multicolored cheek to any garden. Because they thrive in containers as much as in the open, they're a terrific accent for window sills, porches, patios, and decks, bringing their polychromatic cheeriness to every part of the garden and the whole property. Partners for Daffodil Plant The bright yellow of the plant pairs very well with other garden residents, including the Northern Blue Star with its deep blue and indigo blooms and the vibrant red of roses or dahlias. The color palette is nearly endless when considering them fresh, with fabulous flexibility.
