Great Spring Flowers To Plant In Your Yard

by Emma W.R. on March 18, 2015

I love gardening! There is something soothing and tranquil about spending time outdoors. Getting my hands dirty and watching these tiny seeds grow into beautiful flowers. Spring is in the air and I can start daydreaming of which Spring Flowers to plant for this year’s enjoyment. You don’t need a dictionary or a confusing zone deciphering chart. Let’s keep it simple for anyone who wants to just plant pretty flowers. Give these easy to care for flowers a try:

Spring Flowers

• Black-Eyed Susan
• Daylilies
• Geranium
• Phlox
• Peonies
• Aster
• Butterfly flower
• Impatiens
• Primrose
• Pansy

Let’s break it down a little further for the beginner:

Annuals – Flowers only last one season. Usually used for color and variety of flowers.

Perennials – Once planted they will return each year. They are known for their staying power.

Decide if you want to start from scratch and plant seeds. This will take preparation beginning in the winter months and indoor growing first. If you prefer a quicker patch, go to your local gardening center and purchase flowers already bloomed and ready to plant. Read the planting instructions to see height, moisture level and if it needs full sun or shade. Pot and prune your way to a magical oasis of backyard bliss.

There are a number of ways to now present your beautiful garden:
• You can place flowers right into the ground in sectioned off garden bed areas.
• A variety of pots are a good way to spruce up a porch, stairs or tables.
• Flower boxes can brighten up any window.
• Be creative and re-use old items as planters as well. Strainers, coffee cans, teapots, wheel barrels, old watering cans or even a bathtub.

The sky’s the limit with what you can come up with to make it your own sanctuary.

So glad the weather is getting nicer. Time to plant and I never thought of using old items as planters! What a great idea to add color and character to the yard. I’m definitely trying that this year.

My garden could use some more flowers. It always looks so empty. Definitely want something colorful and low maintenance. I’ll have to consider these tips when I am ready to plant.

I’ve never planted flowers before but reading this makes me want to try. At first thought I was going to go the easier route and buy flowers already bloomed to plant but it sounds neat to plant the seeds and watch them grow yourself. If I’m going to get my hands dirty, I want to reap the full reward of watching them come up out of the ground!

I received the most beautiful plants for Easter and I can’t wait until I can go out on my deck and plant them. I love having colorful flowers peeking out of different size planters. Looking at them first thing in the morning while having your coffee will always put a smile on your face.

I already bought some perennials and waiting until the weather is a little warmer to plant my annuals. Each year around Easter time my children usually give me a live plant; can’t wait to get in the garden and get my hands dirty.

I definitely prefer perennials. There is enough other yard work to be done without having to replant flowers each year. It’s nice seeing them all bloom year after year.

I love seeing the flowers blooms. I only wish I wasn’t so allergic.
