It's time to garden! While gardening can be a year-round activity those warm spring and summer months are the times when you just can't resist becoming involved with fragrant flowers, shimmering shrubs and vibrant vegetables. These months will provide you with wonderful memories of bringing those perennials, annuals, ground covers and other beautiful plants into brilliant bloom.
Playing in the dirt is an activity that many people never seem to outgrow. Having the chance to get your fingers dirty as you dig rows in a veggie garden is a chance to indulge your inner child. Whether you are potting flowers for those indoor containers or transplanting young seedlings into a vegetable bed you will experience an amazing amount of fun and enjoymentin gardening activities.
You can use your imagination to create a masterpiece of color and textures even if you only plan to garden on a very small scale. Combine trailing vines with spiky grasses and add bold pops of color with some wicked red dianthus. Pair low-growing oregano with spicy bee balm and create a lovely, maintenance free oasis that will attract both birds and bees.
With a few carefully selected garden plants you can create a scenic landscape that will compliment your yard. You can even mix ferns and perennials to bring some much-needed texture and curb appeal to a shady garden site.
Choose any location for your gardening pursuits. You can grow a wide variety of perennials and annuals in a windowbox. Consider adding a combination of silvery green ferns to amp up the drama of that monochromatic garden bed. Green, silver and shades of grey can bring more interest to any flower bed and it is easy to add these colors when you choose garden plants such as ivy, hostas, Dusty Miller and feathery grasses.
Once you experience the enjoymentin gardening you will want to learn as much as possible about how to maximize the use of ground covers, tall grasses, mounding plants and sunny, colorful annuals in your home environment. Just remember that a garden is always going to be a work that continuously evolves. It is always a work that is in progress. This on-going transformation is one of the attributes that makes gardening such a magical and enjoyable pastime.
