Gardening ideas:
For planning, it is possible to keep the flowers in your garden throughout the duration of growth. Borders and beds are planted with annual and perennial flowers that bloom at different times of year. By choosing carefully at first, and the care of the flowers since then, the flowers overlap each other, so there's never a time when the old blooms disappear, but new one is beginning to show color.

Preparing the soil for flower beds or borders requires greater care than planting a garden. For one thing, digging must be deeper. There is too much to dig the bed 2 feet deep, although 1 1 / 2 feet is adequate.
