Suitable Conditions

Before choosing a plant, make a survey of your garden to find out the conditions that are available for its growth. A landscaping Brighton company will consider the kind of soil available in your garden, the climate and terrain of the area.

The wind speed and the amount of sunlight that your plants will get will also be an important factor to consider while choosing your flowering plants. Another important consideration is the space that’s available for planting the flowers.

Type of Plant

Decide whether you are going to plant annual, biennial or perennial flowering plants in your garden. Each variety has its own unique characteristics to contribute to your garden.

Annuals like marigold, sunflowers and poppies will give you colourful, bright flowers every year, but they have to be planted annually.

You will get flowers from biennials every alternate year as they take a year to grow and the next to flower.

Perennials like peonies and roses will live for many years but there’s no assurance you’ll have flowers every year. We, at CPS Landscape, suggest a combination of the different types of plants to ensure a year-long growth of flowers.

Care Tips

Regular weeding and cleaning of the gardens is most essential for healthy growth of plants

Remove the dried and diseased leaves which look blackened and blotched; these are harmful for the plants

Putting a mulch or blanket cover of bark chippings on the borders of the plant will prevent weed growth and prevent evaporation of moisture

Green sucking insects like aphids are a menace for the growth of plants. They suck the sap out of green shoots which hampers the growth of plants. Be on the lookout for these insects and destroy them without any delay
