You then need to do a little research and design you garden, drawing out a plan of your garden can be very useful, particularly if you are using many different colors, then bring out those markers or colored pencils. When shopping for your plants you should avoid plants that are already too big for their pots, plants that are too root bound or leggy and make sure you note the type of sun exposure for each plant.

When the plants are still in pots you can position them in your garden as you may decide to change things once you have the plants on hand. When you actually plant flower garden plants, make sure you don’t block the sun by putting taller plants in front of short ones. When planting your plants make sure you use a trowel and loosen the roots before planting. The root ball should be just above the surrounding soil and once you have pressed soil around the plant you should water. Finally it is important to water your plants regularly and keep watch of your plants for pruning and any other problems that may arise.
