garden plans perennials flowers list free plot plan

This flower garden plan will provide many years of enjoyment since perennials repeat each year; no replanting required! The key to a perennial garden is careful selection of plants, so we've given careful consideration to our plant list as well as plot plan.

Not only do perennials keep coming back, but also long-flowering perennials can contribute color for two months or longer. Attractive leaves, showy seed heads, and fetching foliage add even more interest. For early color, add daffodils, crocus, and other spring bulbs.

This 5x10-foot rectangle suits a path or driveway border and requires well-drained soil and full sun. In longer beds, repeat the pattern.

I learned the most by getting a lot of high end
catalogs sent to me. I looked for free or low cost
catalogs. I have loads of
garden books but after a certain point, what a bore.
Catalogs are fresh and new
with a full description of the plant and whether or not it will work in your garden. I
Don't forget about Martha Stewart online. I think that
she has a plant library for looking up plants. If you have a botanical garden nearby. Try to go on the first of every month for a year.
It'll show you every stage of

really get, water needs, etc

  • Avatar GeoL What's the best way to design a perennial garden?
    Feb 10, 2007 by GeoL | Posted in Garden & Landscape

    I have a large space - 26' - along the front of my house. I think I'm going to make the bed about 3 or 4' in width. What's the best way to lay out my garden? Should it be symmetrical or just bunched and more free (like …s (2'x3') and then some small ornamental grasses and 2-4" border flowers in the front. I think I'm also going to put a weeping redbud on the left side. Do you have any ideas for how I should do this... I'm at a loss!!!

    • Whether you design a formal garden (symmetrical) or informal garden (cottage style) is up to you. However, here are a few thing to consider. Mass together perennials of the same type in groups of three or five. Try to ha …s. Try to plan the perennial bed so that there is something in bloom in a few different areas of the garden from spring to fall.

      Good luck and have fun.
