Planting For Your Summer Garden
It’s important that your garden has a great mix of flowers, think about how shaded plants can add more colour and depth to your gardens theme. Shady plants aren’t as boring as they sound and they can keep light hidden areas bursting with colour. Consider investing in a few astilbe (False Goats Beard), these can make a creative rainbow bed of flowers, it can work wonders for any over shady spots. These paired with white hostas for a more filled in and rich effect, Hostas offer a splash of colour in their leaves offering blue tones and golden samples.
Another great way to visually stimulate your garden is to introduce some tall lilies, these can look beautiful next to lush ferns and offer the height you might lacking in other plants and flowers. If you want to add some deeper touches get hold of your local garden centres catalogue and search for dramatic colours. You also may want to consider the introduction of ornaments, sola lights, rocks and even a water feature or pond.
Do You Have A Conservatory?
If you are lucky enough to have a conservatory remember that the colours and state of your house will have an impact on the ascetics of your garden. Your conservatory needs to be able to match and fit in with the changes of the seasons, so you can enjoy your hard work all year round. You can use roman blinds ready made to make the most of the weather and garden through the seasons, blinds are a great way of protecting your seeded flowers or house plants through too much direct sun light.
Gardening Takes Dedication
Just remember that a great looking garden cannot take care of its self, and you can dedicate time each day just to be in the space and see what is going on, what plants need attention and which ones need more water or pruning. If you don’t have the time to invest time into your garden every day ensure you spend those summer days doing your upmost to preserve your hard work. The hard work in your garden can pay off when family and friends come round, remember to appreciate you space as well as look after it.
It’s often said that the more you indulge in your love of gardening the more things you enjoy about your garden. If you follow these essential tips this summer you should end up with a beautiful yet versatile display.
