With the right nurturing, these little beauties will grow to be large beauties in no time at all. After you have chosen which types of flowers you want to or can grow, you need to set about creating the correct environment. You can use anything you like for this including wooden posts laid out horizontally, plastic or metal landscaping borders, stones, bricks or basically anything else that you desire. Your garden can be anything you want, a full wild flower garden or a garden within your existing garden, it can have a simple mulch path with a small bench for sitting, or elaborate brick walks and walls, water feature and lighting.
It became very important to my husband and me to make sure we brought some of these plants into our own garden. When planting your flowers be sure their planted at the existing grade of the garden. To achieve a constant bloom throughout the season, plant many different species. You should also consider foot traffic and children and pet play habits in the area you are considering establishing your perennial flower bed. These gardens were the opposite of the large formal gardens found in palaces and grand country houses. You can start your garden from wild flower seed or plants but whichever you choose, for a successful garden you need to plan and prepare and then plant.
Similar to pansies but with smaller flowers, these fragrant little beauties flower abundantly throughout early autumn to late spring. Know the ideal growing environment for plants purchased. One of the nicest wild flower gardens, if your climate is suitable, is an orchid garden. Choose something that fits the look that you wish to achieve. The amount of work involved is determined by size and layout. There are the irises that my father-in-law fought to grow, in certain locations around the house, and that he fought to control in others. Flowers planted too high or too deep will often perform poorly. Iris, bleeding heart and a variety of bulbs are notable early bloomers.
Try to avoid planting your perennial flowers in an area where they will be trampled underfoot. Many of the plants used today are annuals - that is, they have to be renewed every year - unlike perennials which continue to produce year after year. Their masses of flowers in endless colours are a wonderful sight in any garden. If a plant is shade loving (such as most ferns) that does not mean it does not need sun in order to grow. In Thailand, a lot of the orchids grow on the bark of live or fallen trees, so we have a few uprooted tree stumps in shaded areas of the garden with dozens of wild orchids growing on them. Try to make the area mesh well with other garden accessories that you have or plan to use.
