I find so much pleasure and pride creating my garden font and back yard, tending to my flowers each day before and after my full time job. I am not an experience gardener. I love having flowers around the yard, when buying seeds to buying starters its 50/50 to hope they survive and flourish the whole spring and summer.
I try to buy year round flowers, my 1st year of planting flowers I didn't know their were flowers that come up every year, I always assumed replanting was the only way. But Ive learned that much now.
I also recall planting seeds and later down the road pulling the new spouts out thinking they were weeds. To over come that again
I purchase the compostable trays
fill them with soil along with flowers seeds. Lay them out in the garden where I would like them to grow. I have to say I am really proud of myself to see they have grown so well and flowers are perfect.
I have wasted and spent a lot of money to see my flowers die, or did not grow to what it was expected. I often thought it was the soil I was using, I thought of lots of reasons why haft the time my flowers just died.
I learned also to use Miracle-Gro food. I found that Miracle products is my friend, least its helped me save most of my flowers from dying so quickly.
I am very proud of my flowers and yard, enjoy sitting on my front porch in the morning sun, drinking a cup of coffee and viewing the many flowers that are blooming and re-budding.
My grand daughters are also flower lovers, they enjoy helping me in the yard.
