How to Arrange a Flower Garden – When it comes to arranging a flower garden there are only a few considerations. One is color and the other is the size. There are several software programs that allow you to arrange your garden and I’ve tried one or two of these. They are not to my taste mostly because of the time I spent installing and trying to think of a program I could be pulling weeds… I’d love to get my hands dirty more sitting in front of a screen any day of the week.
The first thing you need to do is consider the color. This is a really personal thing, but I prefer flowers in shades of the same color so I’m trying to arrange my garden so that the same color or complementary. For example, I have yellow begonias that bloom more or less throughout the summer. I put the yellow and blue pansies in the garden the same for protection. The pansies are annuals and the begonias have to be dug and taken in in the colder months. So for the perennials, I have white and yellow tulips that come in mass in the spring followed quickly by daffodils and then by other yellow flowers that come up in rotation all summer – lilies, potentilla, and daisies.

Arranging this garden is pretty simple. The tall plants in the center flanked by the lower plants with room for the begonias to be planted back each year. The Rim bed is filled with pansies.take it.
Options for colors ranging from one color to sleep (with a splash of white in the case of the one I just described) to a multicolored bed that comes in waves of color. Neighbors have a place to sleep that begins with the red of the tulip is filled with blue and pink William and Marys (officially known as Pulmonaria and unofficially known as lungwort, Bethlehem sage, Jerusalem sage, Joseph’s Mary, and see the dog).
After the William and Marys lose their bloom their leaves remain green with white spots so they make a nice low green view in the garden. Then she has purple iris appears along with the bleeding hearts. This is followed by the orange tiger lily. The only things which he grows annually are kale (or ornamental cabbage). She tucks this under the taller plants and when the bleeding hearts die down and the irises and lilies are ready to be trimmed, there she cabbage appears like a miracle.
The beauty of this type of gardens is that they are very low maintenance. You keep weeding them and in the gaps of anything too big, but you don’t have to do much in terms of digging and planting and more colors just keep coming throughout the summer.
The size of the plant can provide wonderful texture to your garden if they are mixed with the good. A mixture of high and low plants so that they all can see and a mixture of thin plant with heavy people so graceful stems thin people can be seen and heavy people who have space to grow.
