Celebrate Plant a Flower Day on March 12th to Welcome Spring! Here Are Some Essential Gardening Tips

Man Gardening | Veteran Car DonationsSpring’s almost here, and you know what that means? We’ll be surrounded by beautiful flowers once again – daffodils, tulips, and lilacs among many others. You name it, spring’s got it! And there’s absolutely no better way to kick off the season than by joining in the celebration of Plant a Flower Day on March 12!

For thousands of years, flowers have been serving many different purposes in people’s lives. We adorn our homes with our favorite blooms, while men seek their partners’ affection by surprising them with bouquets of roses. There are also flowers that are used as traditional medicine. Looking at an array of colorful flowers just brings us a sense of delight – perfect for turning a bad day around. 

It’s hard to imagine a world without plants. With more and more people using pesticides nowadays, added by increased urbanization, such a world could happen in the future. This is another reason to convince everyone to take part in Plant a Flower Day.

 

Make Your Backyard the Envy of Your Neighborhood with These Tips

Obviously, the best way to spend this special day is by planting your own flowers. When you do so, the first thing you should consider is your location.

It might not be a good idea to sow seeds outside your home if you live in a zone where it snows. If that’s the case, you might as well just plant your blooms in a pot for indoor decoration.

On the other hand, if you’re situated in a sunny area, then it’s time to put on your garden gloves and head your way out the door to do some gardening business.

Whether you plan on planting perennials or annuals, following these tips will definitely make your backyard the envy of your neighborhood!

  • Start simple.

You don’t have to go all out and grow an entire flowerbed, especially if you got a tight schedule. A potted garden will do!

  • Fertilize only when necessary.

A good rule of thumb in gardening is to avoid unnecessary fertilization. Use a color test to see if a flower is growing in a healthy vibrancy. If it does, you don’t need to waste your time, effort, and money on fertilizing it!

  • Make use of organic matter.

For faster growth and radiantly healthy flowers, add organic matter such as compost into your planting bed. It can make all the difference.

  • Choose flowers that grow best in your spot.

If you’re still unfamiliar with what types of plants are ideal for certain areas, you might want to do a bit of research first. Some flowers bloom best under the sun, while there are others that are made for the shade.

  • Consult someone with a green thumb.

Know a friend, or perhaps a friend’s friend who’s into gardening? Better grab the opportunity to ask for sound advice on everything floral!

  • Keep it bee-friendly.

Bees not only depend on flowers and their nectar to survive, but they also pollinate the plants to produce food for humans. Attract these useful insects in your garden by planting flowers such as jasmines, poppies, honeysuckles, and English lavenders.
