Why Learn to Grow Your Own Perennial Flowers? – A Beginners Guide


If you are looking to plant some perennials in your yard, but don’t know where to start, this is the guide for you! We’ll cover all of the basics of growing perennial flowers, as well as some tips and tricks that will make your experience a successful one.

See the beauty of these plants in action.

Perennials are plants that grow every year, and some even bloom more than once. Some of the best perennials for beginners include things like peonies and hostas. These types of plants are particularly hardy and well-suited for people who don’t have a lot of green thumb experience yet. But if you’re ready to get started, there’s no reason why your garden can’t be gorgeous!

Perennials have many advantages over annuals or biennials (which only last one season). For example:

  • They are evergreen; they don’t need to be replanted each year like other kinds of flowers do.
  • They come in lots of different colors as well as sizes—you can find some that grow tall while others remain short but beautiful nonetheless!
  • Some even smell good when they bloom at certain times throughout the year—finally an excuse not go outside all day long during those hot summer months!

There is little upkeep to keep your perennials beautiful.

Most perennial flowers require little to no watering, fertilizing and pruning (if any). Soil prep is also minimal compared to annuals or bedding plants which need frequent watering and nutrients to help them grow.

Perennial beds have fewer weeds than annual flower beds because they don’t have to be weeded so often (less weed seeds will germinate in the soil if it hasn’t been disturbed).

Disease control with perennials is not necessary because you are growing them in the ground where they are exposed directly to nature predators like birds and insects who eat them for their food source.

Low-maintenance garden care keeps these plants thriving.

One of the best things about growing perennial flowers is that they require very little maintenance. Whether you’re a busy person who doesn’t want to spend hours in your yard each week or someone who wants to reduce their carbon footprint, low-maintenance gardening is ideal for anyone who wants to keep their flower beds looking beautiful without putting in too much effort.

Low-maintenance gardening can also save you some money on your monthly bills, since it doesn’t require any expensive watering systems or fertilizers. You can choose plants that are native to your region and naturally thrive there, which means they won’t need extra care or special attention from you. Most perennials will live for years without needing any additional care other than occasional pruning!

Their beauty is dependable (unlike some fickle annuals).

Perennials are an excellent choice for you if you’re looking to add color and beauty to your yard. They come back year after year, and they’re much more dependable than annuals. They also tend to be more beautiful than annuals because they can thrive in less-than-ideal conditions.

Annuals, on the other hand, have a short life span—they die each year after their flowers bloom. Not only do they cost more up front than perennials (most of them), but they require additional costs for reseeding or replanting every spring.

You can share the bounty with others.

If you’re growing your own perennial flowers, you’ll have a bounty of blooms to enjoy for yourself. You can also share the bounty with others.

  • Share them with friends and family: Your mom would love some beautiful violets or lavender! Your dad will be enchanted by lilacs. Your sister will be delighted by that rosebush she’s been asking for ever since her wedding day (the one where she wore white).
  • Share them with the environment: It’s not just your friends who’ll benefit from your plants—you can help out local wildlife, too! For example, bees love daffodils because they’re fragrant, which means that when you plant some daffodils in your garden, it becomes more attractive than ever for bees looking for food sources—and if there are plenty of bees flying around in your yard every springtime morning then they might decide to stay there instead of moving on to another backyard further down the street! And everyone knows how important it is having good neighbors who aren’t noisy all night long so this really helps keep those pesky pests away from our homes while allowing us all some peace and quiet at night! We’ve seen first-hand how beneficial this can be.”

Reduce your carbon footprint by growing what you love.

If you want to reduce your carbon footprint and enjoy flowers that are native to your area, consider growing perennial flowers.

  • Find a local nursery or seed company that specializes in perennials. You can also check with friends and family members who might have experience with growing perennials.
  • If possible, choose native plants for your region of the world so that you will be able to enjoy them year-round (even through cold winters).
  • Consider which type of soil is best suited for the type of plant you’re interested in growing before purchasing any seeds or seedlings. Most perennials need well-drained soil with plenty of organic material mixed into it.

Perennial flowers are a beautiful, low-maintenance addition to any yard!
