Need advice on gardening flowers plants trees for the picture perfect garden? When you want a lovely, colorful garden, you need to add some perennial flowers, as well as other plants, and trees. Gardens are all about color and balance. Scroll down for my suggestions (with pictures) and a list of flowers to consider.

Tips for Creating a Great Garden..

  • Keep in mind bloom time, as well as the mature size of the plant.
  • When building your rose garden, or any flower garden, you should make it a gradual process, always looking at "The big picture" of what the finished garden will be.
  • A common mistake (and one I myself is guilty of) is planting gardening flowers plants trees to close to one another. Be sure you give them plenty of room to grow and spread, without crowding each other.

You especially don't want to plant shrubs or trees (too) close to the rose bushes. You want them there in the area of the garden, but not so close as to cause shade, or crowd the rose bushes.

  • Adding a variety of gardening flowers plants trees to the garden, can be an enjoyable process, that sometimes becomes trial and era, so begin with this list of flowers and find some perrenial flowers, shrubs, and a tree or two (depending on your garden size) to compliment your garden.
