I love the outdoors, but I also love winter. I’m from Canada and we have a very long, very cold winter season. So, one of my favorite things to do is look out at my garden on a chilly day and imagine what it’ll be like when everything is in bloom. But then reality hits…it’s still not spring! How can we enjoy our gardens all year round? With some patience and a few tricks up our sleeves, you can make your garden bloom all year round no matter what time of year it is!
Plant in containers.
If you want to grow plants all year round, you should consider planting in containers. This is a great way to keep your garden looking good all year, because it will keep the plants inside until it’s time for them to come out of hibernation.
There are many things you can use as a container for your plants: any type of container will work so long as it is big enough for the plant and has drainage holes. For example, if you don’t have an old barrel lying around your house that would work well as a planter, remember that most artificial ponds are made from plastic barrels! One thing that all planters have in common is that they need good drainage so that water doesn’t collect at their base and cause root rot or mold problems (unless these are things you’re looking forward to). A light potting mix works best here—one with plenty of nutrients but without too much clay content which tends not drain well—as does one with plenty airy space between particles like peat moss or sand.
Use small bulbs.
When it comes to planting bulbs in containers, the smaller the bulb, the better. The size of your container will also determine how many bulbs you can plant. Smaller pots are easier to fill because they have less surface area and don’t require too much soil or compost.
Planting small bulbs is also ideal because they’re less likely to get lost among bigger plants or fall out of larger pots while being moved around by accident. Bulbs should be planted at least six inches apart from each other so that their roots are not crowded together underground; this will ensure healthy growth throughout next year’s growing season.
Choose the right plants.
Rosemary, thyme and various mints are good choices for sun-loving gardeners.
- Perennial flowers such as dianthus and snapdragons will bloom all season long.
- Begonias and coleus have no trouble thriving in shade or sunlight, and they can even handle dry soil at times.
Choose the right pots.
- Choose the right pots.
- Choose a pot that suits the plant. Does it need to be planted in something with drainage holes, or does it prefer to be kept in water? Is it a tropical plant that needs full sun all day long? If so, you’ll want to make sure you’re using a big enough pot so that the roots have room to expand as they grow larger over time (and remember: plants can outgrow their containers!). You might also consider choosing different containers based on how much light each part of your garden receives—some plants need more sunlight than others.
- Choose a pot that makes the plant look good. If you’re seeing an awesome selection at one store but there’s nothing like those particular kinds available at another place nearby, try going there instead! It may take some shopping around for certain plants (especially if they’re rare), but everything will work out eventually if you keep looking around until finding what works best for both parties involved – including your wallet!
