Time to Dig







3. Time to Dig

You don’t need to dig huge holes to plant your new flowers. Follow the directions on your seed packet to know how deep and wide your hole needs to be. If you are planting multiple flowers, make sure you space them out so they have room to grow.







Watering is KEY

4. Watering is KEY

Flowers need water just like you do! Flowers grow best when they receive 1 to 2 inches of water every week. Make sure you allow time for the flower to absorb the water. It’s better to water deeply and less frequently. Once to twice a week should do the trick!










Groom For Growth

5. Groom For Growth

Grooming your flowers is important to stimulate growth. Picking off dead leaves and even cutting your flowers for bouquets from time to time keeps the plant healthy.













Voila! With a few easy steps you have successfully planted a beautiful flower garden. Now you can enjoy the natural beauty of flowers right from home.
