This one is for the helplessly romantic: an all season, ever-blooming flower garden is not a dream anymore, it’s real. With careful planning your flower garden can be a visually stunning part of your garden from early spring to winter. Ornamental bulbs bloom first in springtime, then come roses, poppies, peonies, then it’s time for the larkspur, ladybell, marigold and summer lilac to bloom. Come fall, it’s the turn of asters, chrysanths and your trees to bring color to your backyard, and finally, in the winter, woodbine, ivy and the evergreen honeysuckle will become the focus of your all season flower garden.
One of the advantages of an ever-blooming garden is that you can put beautiful flowers in your vases at any time of the year. A nice peony, love-in-a-mist, poppy, some wild flowers or dianthus will make any home warmer and happier. Play around with bloom times, design your all season garden accordingly! You wouldn’t want all those flowers bloom at once. On the side of pavement and garden roads, plant rose moss, blanket flower or begonia.
