Create Unique Patterns with Common Flowering Shrubs

June 2nd, 2014

You can create unique patterns with common flowering shrubs!

Your garden sends a message about who you are and what you care about. Have you ever seen those well-manicured hedges at famous locations like Versailles? These send a message of nobility, royalty and attention-to-detail. Do you want to create unique patterns with common flowering shrubs to make a good first impression?

Geometric Shapes Words or Animal Landscaping Designs

Before a neighbor or business client enters your home, he or she will see the designs of your landscaping. What messages are you sending to the neighborhood? Make geometric shapes, words or animal designs in your yard with your children to express family creativity.

Planting a tree for the birth of a child is a special commemoration. Each year, your family could get together and plan the garden pattern for the next year. You could make words, shapes or other unique patterns with flowering shrubs. The possibilities are endless.

Choosing the Right Plants for Your Yard

An online plant nursery offers great affordable garden plants along with tips from other home gardeners. Sharing your experiences can increase your gardening knowledge. Here are some of the factors for selecting the perfect plant:

  • Climate
  • Season
  • Soil
  • Sun
  • Watering
  • Owner preferences

There is a natural progression of simple to complex garden plants. Those who want an “easy-to-maintain” yard might select evergreens, bushes and shrubs. Ground cover is a great way to fill that bald spot. A combination of perennials and annuals is the next step. The ideal is to have gardens blooming through each season.

Flowering All Year Long

While a plant “may look beautiful,” it might not be ideal for your yard environment. An online plant nursery can show you plants that grow well in different geographical locations. As you read the free newsletter, you can learn about things like pest control.

Professional gardeners might create different patterns for spring, summer and fall that overlap in the same space. For example, if you use flowering shrubs that bloom in the spring, you could make a square shape with them. Then, add some summer-blooming garden plants in a circle within the square.

Find affordable flowering shrub garden plants for the home gardener to enliven your yard. Beautiful flowers will attract insects, bees, animals and humans who will all want to enjoy your beautiful garden. The proper landscaping will transfer a boring home and yard into an exciting home and wilderness environment.

What are some of the best garden plants to eat?

April 28th, 2014

Which are The Best Garden Plants To Eat? Creating a garden is a reflection of your unique style and personality. If you enjoy preparing foods with fresh ingredients, you might want to think about incorporating affordable garden plants to eat into your landscape. Planning a garden that includes edible plants can add interest and provide pleasure to your senses, and they can help you make delicious summer recipes to share with family and friends.

 

Sugar Mountain Kalinka Haskap

For a different garden plant treat, establish the Sugar Mountain Kalinka Haskap and the Sugar Mountain Blue Haskap as a set in your garden because the one pollinates the other. Grow Haskap flowering shrubs in full sun with plenty of water in well-drained soil, At maturity, these five to six foot plants, produce one-inch sweet summer berries that are a wonderful addition to frozen desserts, jams, wines, or just eating as a fresh or frozen fruit.

 

Nanking Cherry

A nice flowering and fruit-bearing shrub is the Nanking Cherry. It grows six to eight feet tall and about as wide, and the sweet-tart cherries are delicious used in pies and jams. This shrub is hearty, grows well in sun to partial shade, and will tolerate dry, sub-zero winter temperatures very well. The wildlife in your region will enjoy eating the fruit too.

 

Mint

There are several varieties of fragrant and tasty mint for the garden. You may want to use them for container gardening because frankly, mint needs to be contained or it may take over. However, if you are looking for ground cover plants, any of the mints will work. Try some of the newer varieties such as Pineapple Mint, Chocolate Mint, and Apple Mint, or there is always the old favorite, Blue Balsam Peppermint. They all smell delightful and each has a different look. Mints pair beautifully in fruit dishes and summer drinks. If you are looking to feed the butterflies and bees, several mints bloom mid to late summer and make perfect plants to eat nectar.

 

There are many edible garden herb plants and small growing fruit plants at our online plant nursery. We invite you to signup for our gardening newsletter and updates, and please feel free to browse our site.

Tips for Hiring a Home Gardener to Help You in the Garden

March 31st, 2014

Can you imagine owning a gorgeous garden? You can have a lovely place where plants, shrubs, flowers and trees fill your own backyard with beautiful scenery. Even if you don’t know how to cultivate a breathtaking garden yourself, you can hire someone who can help…a home gardener.

The Cost Of A Gardener
Many people spend weeks toiling over gorgeous greenery to make their garden a reality. If you want to spend the time and energy on your gardening efforts, this can be an investment for the future. The more you spend time on your garden, the more you’ll learn.

However, if you would rather not spend the money or the time researching and working in your yard, you can go ahead and hire a gardener to do it for you. Most gardeners will charge anywhere from $35 to $55 an hour for their services. This usually includes pruning your shrubs and your trees; purchasing and delivering plants; and planting your pots, urns and window boxes with annuals. It should also include weeding a flowerbed full of perennials, mulching and

edging your yard and designing flowerbeds for your property.

What To Look For In A Gardener
Before you hire a gardener to handle the garden plants and flowering shrubs in your yard, consider what qualifications are important to you.

Ask your neighbors if they have a gardener that they would recommend to you. Gardeners who generally have five to 10 years of experience will more than likely be great to hire for the job. It’s vital that your gardener has a great reputation. They should have positive testimonials that show their experience, professionalism and dedication to maintaining a multitude of yards in the past few years.

You also want your gardener to be punctual, reliable and honest. This is someone who will be on your property when you may not be present, so it’s important that you trust him or her. Unless you have stated otherwise, your gardener should be working with adequate tools that allow him or her to complete the job

well.

Decide What Projects You Would Like Completed
This is your time to think about what you want to do with your yard. When you hire a gardener, you can discuss what you’ve imagined would look nice for your home.

How would you like to use your yard? Are you going to be grilling outside and inviting friends over during the warm months? Would you like to put in a gazebo and decorate it with colorful flowers everywhere?

You can order from Greenwood Nursery and get affordable garden plants, ground cover plants and flowering shrubs that will embellish your backyard. Our online plant nursery is exactly what you need to transform your garden.
