It is the biggest mistake of all in making a garden to plant only once and then expecting full harvest all season. It is a fact that flower growers must plant nearly every week through the middle of the summer to keep the garden alive. Flowers are also categorized on the basis of their blooming seasons, just as vegetables do, which are Spring, Summer, Autumn and Winter. Most of the flowers are season – specific. Though, there are a few flowers that bloom through out the year. Those flowers are called perennials.
Spring Time is not only the time of growth and renewal of new plant but also animal life. Spring flowers bloom at different times in the North and South Hemispheres. Most flowering plants bloom during spring time. For three months this time is granted to us to enjoy the varieties of colors and scents. Tulips are all over in just about every color, Flowering branches, Dogwood, Cherry Blossom, Quince, Forsythia, Plum, Lilac and so much more.
Summer is the flower arranger’s delight. It is the one season of the year which really works with you and floral growth is on its peak in the summer season. In this time of the dear you can choose to adorn your garden with a variety of annuals, perennials, shrubs, bulbs, vines and tropical plants because colors are rich and varied, foliage lush and abundant, and gardens come into their own. There is simply more of everything. The Northern hemisphere experiences summer during June, July, august, while Southern hemisphere during December – February.
Usually the summer months are a time for holidays, and outdoor events, such as tetes, barbecues and garden parties. Above all, it is the season of weddings and flowers are in great demand all season. Early summer is also the best time to plant containers.
Many flower gardens look great in spring and early summer but at reaching the mid of this season many of the flowers seem to wilt. To avoid your garden to look like this you need to plant some flowers that thrive in heat and bloom in advance; so that your garden will look fresh till the end of the summer.
Autumn has a lot to offer, it is the season of the primary harvest. Autumn falls during September – November in both Northern hemisphere and Southern hemisphere. Autumn does not remain for a long time and soon changes into winter before you truly enjoy the terracotta tones, the browns, the rusts, the twigs and the amber colors. Crops are harvested during Autumn.
So absorb the scenes when autumn is in full swing, go out, see the leaves change color, find a hay ride somewhere, pick a pumpkin, be a kid again and enjoy all that the season has to offer.
The colorful display continues well into autumn
