Early Spring Flowers
Spring flowers are what everyone looks forward to seeing after a long winter. Winter flowers are great but the first flowers of spring such as Crocuses to the many different perennials, like peonies or poppies, that finish blooming at the end of spring will quickly make you forget about those snowy and cold days of winter. People love spring and summer flowers because they know warmer weather is on the way. There is nothing like walking through a beautiful garden full of brightly colored, beautiful looking and smelling, springtime flowers.
This is one of the busiest times for gardeners. With all the different types of flowers to choose from, one must decide how they want to arrange their garden: by color, style, such as flower bulbs, perennials, raised garden bed, shrubs etc… or maybe just use your favorite flowers.
Flowers come in many different bright and beautiful colors which means there are many colorful flowers to choose from such as: red, pink, orange, yellow, blue, purple, and even white. If you are planting white flowers, be careful of where you plant them. Some white flowers that are planted too soon after winter can turn brown due to frost.
If you want to get a jump start on planting your flowers you can start an indoor garden or use the Flower House FHSH200 StarterHouse Seed Starter a very small greenhouse that will fit just about anywhere and will protect your plants allowing you to start planting earlier in the season.
Best Flowers to Plant in Spring
Tulips are a beautiful flower to plant, and remind everyone that Easter is on the way. They come in colors such as, pink, orange, yellow, and white. You could have a whole garden of tulips alone. Spring is the time to plant perennials. Perennials grow in late spring, through early summer. Some examples of perennials are Lily of the Valley, Geraniums, Candytuft, and Forget-Me-Nots.
Flower Bulbs are also popular among spring gardens. Early spring flowers such as Crocuses are a very popular type of bulb to plant for spring. Spring flowering bulbs are usually planted in the fall and then grow in the spring. They are planted in the fall because they need the cold in order to grow.
Another wonderful sign of spring is the many wonderful trees that grow flowers. I know I love to ride down a street full of beautiful cherry flowering trees. All that pink just reminds me that my favorite season has arrived. There is definitely a lot to think about when it comes to what flowers for spring to plant.
