  1. Choose an area that corresponds with the growing requirements and soil type of the wildflowers chosen.
  2. Clear any choking grass and weeds from this area and then follow planting instructions on the seed packet.
  3. Continue to weed and water your outdoor garden weekly, practicing patience while the wildflowers grow!

How to Grow Wildflowers in Pots?

What if you only have a small balcony or porch but still want to enjoy the beauty of wildflowers?

No worries, you can successfully grow wildflowers in pots! Simply follow these steps:

  1. Choose large and deep pots with good drainage, such as this self-draining 10” pot. This will help you avoid root rot and ensure the most room for strong root growth.
  2. Fill pots with rich, fertilized soil or an indoor potting mix.
  3. Don’t overseed your pot. Start off planting 10-12 wildflower seeds per large pot for starters.
  4. Water your wildflowers diligently and make sure they get at least a few hours of sunlight daily.

Don’t hesitate, start growing wildflower today!

how to plant roses


HOW TO PLANT ROSES- Rose gardening is probably easier than you think. Growing and caring for roses is different from or more difficult than the usual way of growing flowers.

Let’s look at how you can successfully plant roses in the garden.

1. Good conditioning:

Roses need good exposure to the sun for six or more
hours in a day. Expect you are growing roses in an extremely hot area, there is
no need for shade. There is no particular choice of soil for roses, but they need
adequate nutrients to bloom and thrive. Hence, rich loamy soil with a slightly acidic PH level is most ideal. It is necessary that the sight is protected from wind, and that the rose bush is not crowded to ensure good airflow between the plant.

2. Preparing the ground and soil:

The planting hole should be as deep and a little wider than the root ball. Save the removed soil and mix with bone meal or an
ideal equivalent to refill the dug hole after planting. You can add some organic manure or compost if the removed soil is of poor quality. Allow the root to take
hold before adding anything else.

3. Preparing and planting the rose:

Preferably with a glove, gently remove the
rose from its temporary pot. To ensure that the roots take to the ground as soon as planted, you should loosen the roots. Hold the plant from its base and slip the plant from the pot. With removed soil mixed bone meal, you make a mound at the center of the hole. Put in the rose's root and ensure that the graft union is just below the ground level.

4. Watering and caring for the newly planted rose:

Soak the newly planted rosewater and apply mulch up to two inches around the root and base. You continue watering the rose every other day until it starts to send out new growth.

Here are some beautiful rose flowers and bouquets you may give to your loved one-

Winter Flowers

A Guide To Winter Flowers

Winter Flowers

Winter is commonly thought of as the season without colorful flowers and plant life. In colder parts of the world, it is referred to as the "dead period", in which nothing but white and cold is visible. However, did you know that may winter flowers are perfect for non-winter seasons? This is because most winter flowers are not exposed to much sunlight throughout the winter season, so they thrive in damp and shady areas.


There isn't a better analogy for family togetherness and comfort in the world of gardening than the winter Snowdrops. This is because these flowers clump together in shady areas to keep each other hydrated. Once they clump together, they create a picture perfect fullness which can make your garden look like a snowy forest trail. For the proverbial cherry on top, the tops of the flowers droop down like little bulbs.


Being winter flowers, Snowdrops require minimal effort when it comes to planting. All they need is for the soil to be loosen and then planted with compost or dried manure and granular fertilizer. Make sure to blend the soil and fertilizer together, so there are no clumps. The Snowdrops need the blending of the soil to be able to freely move to clump together with the mother bulb in offsets.

Where To Plant?

Due to the season that these plants thrive in, they require little of the sunlight that seasoned flowers require, but they do require an abundance of rain and general water source to stay hydrated. There is no such thing as over watering when it comes to Snowdrops! One thing to keep in though; Snowdrops are dormant during the warmer Spring and Summer Seasons and go into a sort of flower hibernation during those times. Because of this, you must be very careful to keep from uprooting these petite pretties when planting and maintaining your Summer and Spring flowers
