Always Blooming Flowerbeds

I had a neighbor who had the most beautiful flowerbed. Seemed like every week or something new came up to change the look of it. I always wondered what her secret planting method was. I'd love to know.

Hi Sharon,

Why not invite your neighbor over for coffee or tea & let her know how mesmerized you are after seeing her flower beds. Hopefully she will get the hint & help you put together a garden as lovely as hers. And I'm sure that you can reciprocate by offering her the services of one of your talents. And if worse comes to worst you can always bake a lovely batch of cookies (every one loves toll house cookies).

Good luck & hope you end up w/a beautiful garden.

I've heard of folks who "cheat" by keeping various pots of blooming plants in a hidden location, and rotate them in and out of the garden. The plants are set into the ground, pot and all. When one plant starts to fade, they just dig up the plant (with pot) and replace it with another one that's looking good at the time.

The faded plant then goes back into the storage location until it reblooms and can be set out once again. The garden is usually mulched with gravel or bark, so that the edges of the pots in the ground can't be seen.

You can plant bulbs or plants that bloom at different times in rows, one behind the other. Rows of three, four, however deep. Then when one flower dies the other is ready to bloom...and so on. Read this in a gardening magazine. Strategically place the differently-timed blooms around to make the garden ever changing & always "full".
