BigNews.Biz - Aug 02,2012 - There are many beautiful gardens on show to the public in the UK; they are perfection that takes your breath away. Professional gardeners have the knack of planting a tapestry of colour that holds the spectator’s interest around every corner.
There are many novice gardeners that try to emulate what they see when visiting these lovely gardens, and a lot succeed, of course on a much smaller scale. There are many kinds of gardens and many species of garden plants, and of course planted in all sorts of places.
The most common is obviously the garden that surrounds the house but just as popular is window box gardens, container gardens, indoor gardens, kitchen gardens, bearing in mind a lot of senior citizens will go for container plants that will give them stunning displays without the hard work of beds and all that goes with maintaining them.
Planting window boxes can be achieved by the simple garden seeds, just scatter and see what happens you will be surprised at the beauty that transforms a simple container into something quite special.
Many plants look their best in summer, and this can be the easiest time in the garden, a summer garden shows off stunning colours and offers fragrances, all you need to do is enjoy the show, but hold fast, there are of course some jobs that need doing in the summer to maintain that wonderful look that you have achieved, and dead heading is one of the most important jobs to do.
Dead heading on a regular basis is a necessity, especially all your wonderful hanging baskets, and garden shrubs will also benefit from this task, simply because it encourages new growth. Perennials are a gardener’s delight as they have a life span of more than just one year, and to keep these plants healthy nurture them with pest sprays, and carefully trim whatever dies off to leave the plant to breathe.
Bedding plants such as petunias need dead heading also marigolds they will reward you by spreading and re-flowering through the summer. Soon the gardener’s mind will be on what to order for spring flowering bulbs, and maybe perennials, grasses, shrubs and trees, of course autumn is the ideal time to plant all these plants, but it pays to start looking early, allowing enough time for delivery.
A spokesman for Blooming Direct located on the floral island of Jersey said “it is time to get busy ordering plants, the best way you can do that is to browse online, our website is a ‘one stop’ location for all your garden plants. Many gardeners will purchase our plug plants simply because they want to give their gardens a kick start, these plugs are grown from seed on our very own nursery, and it is not too late to order and plant for stunning displays to the end of summer, remember all orders to the UK are FREE”.
