Flowers to Plant in Early Spring
Posted March 7, 2011on:
There are a large number of flowers that can be planted in early spring season because at that time of year the ground is soft enough to plant different types of flowers. Early spring flowers will give your garden a colorful and elegant look with their refreshing colors and look. Here I am providing you names of some flowers that you can plant in your garden as early spring flowers.
Being annual flowers, snapdragons can be planted year after year. These flowers bloom in cool climates and are very attractive looking flowers as they have colorful borders. The best time to plant them is early spring when the soil is still cool. They grow very well when they are provided with well-drained soil and full sunlight but they can also bear light frosts as well.
These flowers are very easy to grow and can be planted at any time of the year especially in early spring. The method of planting the lilies is somewhat difficult as compared to other early spring flowers. Before planting the lily bulbs in the spring, you are required to place a 4 inch coating of mulch over the area where you want to plant the lilies. Afterwards you can remove the mulch when the shoots start to appear. Like snapdragons, lilies also like full sunlight and well-drained soil. Excessive water in the soil will become a cause of perished and rotten bulbs.
Roses are also grown in early spring when the soil is soft enough to plant these flowers. Most of the home gardeners like to grow roses in the bush form but some types of roses are very small and they are required to be grown in pots. Most of the roses are sweet-smelling but some don’t have any fragrance. The blooms of roses can range from one flower to several flowers on one stem. All types of roses like full sunlight and drained soil for their proper growth.
These are lovely early spring flowers as they come in a variety of colors including purple and off-white. They flourish best in cool spring season. They grow well both in full or partial sunlight and require humid but well-drained soil like most of the others early spring flowers. They continue to bloom until the weather gets hot and then they start to wither.
They are another very popular type of early spring flowers having an eye-catching yellow color. Most of the people know about only yellow daffodils that grow in early spring but there are some other very attractive colors of daffodils including pink, white and cream.
These were some of the most popular early spring flowers that you can plant to beautify your garden.
