Getting Started with Perennials
The basics of gardening are like the comforts of home. You want a garden that is rejuvenating and a place to relax in. You want an opportunity to express your creativity. You need to ask yourself a few questions. What colors do you like? What is your style? How much time do you have for gardening? Are you starting a new garden or revitalizing an existing one? You have a lot of choices so here are some gardening tips on how to proceed.
Map it out. What's your purpose? Is it within view of windows, or a patio? Are you extending your living space? How do you plan to use the garden?
Consider the use of color. Colors can exert a powerful influence on your mood and overall outlook. Warm shades such as reds (daylilies) and yellow (coreopsis) are energizing. A palette of blues (hostas) and greens (fern) can have a restful effect thus becoming an ideal place to meditate or relax.
