A garden is a continuing process that changes from season to season and year to year. Gardeners who have practiced for a while are well aware of this reality and have even come to appreciate the fleeting existence of their surroundings. They enjoy choosing a substitute for a plant that outgrows its previous home or performs poorly. They enjoy seeing various plants take center stage as the seasons shift, and they enjoy meeting the challenge when drought or other climatic conditions occur.
Adding succulents and cacti to build a tropical atmosphere indoors could be the way to go. African violets and kalanchoe (flaming Katy) are two excellent indoor plants that will add a splash of color to your decor.
Planting bulbs in borders or containers will create spectacular displays as they emerge from the soil, gracing the garden with their vibrant colors. Hyacinth’ Pink Pearl’ with its pretty colors and a new fragrance, as well as Iris ‘Gordon’ with its grass-like foliage and purple-blue leaves, will be a welcome sight early in the year.
Bulbs are not just for outdoor gardeners; they can even be planted indoors to take advantage of their vibrant colors and scents. Hippeastrum bulbs should be planted with one-third of the bulb in the soil and the top two-thirds sticking out the top between October and January. The stunning trumpet-shaped blooms will bloom six weeks after planting.
Splashes of color break up green, provide variety, contrast, and focal points. Sow both annual and perennial flowers in your garden. e.g., cosmos, hydrangeas, sunflowers, and marigolds. Flowers have a fantastic ability to beautify any space – pick your favorite color theme.
However, Flowers can be found on a variety of herbs and vegetables. These include chives (purple), spring onions (white), dill (yellow), thyme (pale pink to purple), basils (white or purple), pineapple sage (red), rosemary (purple), rocket (white), as well as all flowering vegetables and fruits.
To make a more significant impact, group plants with the same foliage or flower color. A simple trick to use is to use color to theme an area of your garden.
Any ornament, set, treasured find or anything you create can be used as garden art.
You may draw attention to a particular plant or location using feature planters. An excellent example of ‘less is better’ is a planter with a splash of color.
You can offer the pot you want to highlight as the main feature supremacy by comparing the sizes of the plants or pots around it. Ensure the ones you use to surround it are not as big as the focal pot.
With marigolds, violets, and tatsoi, combine herbs like curly leafed parsley, clumps of chives, mounds of lemon thyme, and lightweight Greek basil. They add color variety and beauty, flavor, and structure.
Plants, like humans, do have different needs and requirements, and providing them with the best growing conditions and the proper nutrients when they’re needed will ensure that they grow happily and healthily.
