Did you ever consider having three full seasons of color on your property? You can, and it's fairly easy! By using early to late bulbs in spring, annuals in the summer and mums in the fall- plus your flowering trees and shrubs - you'll have non-stop color almost year-round. Here are a few tips that may make your personal "flower show" more successful.
There are two basic ways to plan floral displays. You can go for the maximum visual impact or "wow" appeal" by having a few massive beds of one or two types of flowers. The challenge with this approach is that in trying to keep the garden fresh, you need to eliminate the spring bulbs before planting the summer annuals. And then do the same again in fall when the chrysanthemums are ready to become your focal point. This process is more work and some more expense, but you can really knock the socks off of your guests and neighbors with massive flows of color.
The second basic approach is to plant your flowers in a bordertype bed of mixed types of plants. With this approach, you will mix all of the different kinds of flowers through the season, so that as your bulb foliage dies down your annuals begin to thrive and help cover the browning bulb leaves. Many gardeners find this approach more enjoyable for the variety it delivers year round. And you can include small shrubs and perennials as well.
The great thing to remember is that you can "jump onboard" during any season and enjoy the wonderful feeling of watching something you've planted grow!

"Darbi did an amazing job selling my house and helping me find a new house! She was very professional and was quick to respond to all my questions and requests. Darbi gave me great pointers and advice on preparing my house for sale. We received two full asking price offers on the first day that my house was listed on the MLS. I would recommend Darbi to all of my friends and family!
