Today we show you some pictures of pretty flowers that you can plant in the garden. We are all familiar with the problem: we know that we like a plant , say, but we can not be sure if we can cultivate it or if we can have the type of garden that works well in spring and early summer, so here we provide these images of beautiful flowers for the garden and of course tips on how to take care of them . We also invite you to review our article about shrubbery so you can complete the design of the garden by combining different types of plants.
Many alliums have flowers that resemble exploding fireworks. The flowers of the alliums come in colors that vary from purple in spring or soft lilac, soft pink and crimson, to blue, yellow and pure white. Alliums are versatile plants that shine either in a pot or among the herbs in the garden. There are 500 species, all found in temperate climates. Inevitably, some are weeds. Choose wisely, you can enjoy flowers from spring to September, depending on the allium you cultivate.

Its thin, vertical shape makes most alliums occupy very little space on the ground, while adding accents to a garden. The allium that you can see in the images has the best color of all. In the middle of spring, it begins to bloom and its strong stems reach up to 90cm in height. The leaves are bright green and the flowers soft to the touch, have many petals. How to grow this flower In general, alliums need a sunny place and good drainage. Taking into account that they will reappear year after year. You can plant the bulbs of the plant in autumn, at a depth twice the size of the bulb. They can be grown in a heavier soil in full sun and multiply if the soil has good drainage.
The Dianthus carthusianorum belongs to the same family Caryophyllaceae that the carnations and as you can see in the photos have certain resemblance. It has fine green leaves, straight and tall stems and the small group of seven or eight simple flowers that has D. carthusianorum more reminiscent of another member of the dianthus family, the sweet Guillermo or Dianthus barbatus. This flower needs a well-drained soil and should be planted in an open and sunny place. It also demands clean air, which can make it difficult to grow in urban gardens, but coastal gardens are suitable for this.

The Dianthus carthusianorum is found growing wild on the slopes of dry limestone in the south, and central western Europe. Its elegant stem, upright posture and simplicity are very suitable for modern garden styles. If the garden has a heavy clay soil, it incorporates coarse-grained soil to create a raised bed and help drainage before planting members of the dianthus family. Always choose a completely open and sunny site. All dianthus need to spread regularly. Most are grown from cuttings but this one in particular is best grown from seed. To grow these plants it is important to collect and sow the seeds every year. Seed pods are usually mature in September. Harvest the seeds on a dry day and separate them from the pod. Place the seeds in an envelope with a plastic label and store it in a cool, dry place. We can sow the seeds in a sandy compost in March or April. The sown plants can vary in color and height of flower.
We continue with the small white and pink daisy that clings to the rocky cliffs and stone walls. The daisy in question, Erigeron karvinskianus, is native to Mexico, but it is so opportunistic that we can now find it in many parts of the world. This happens since a single plant, once established, can extend and form plantations, extending to any corner where its preference for the sun and good drainage can be satisfied. Erigeron karvinskianus, has in common with many plants that inhabit rocky terrain, makes strong roots that make way between the spaces between the rocks, ensuring that the plant is firmly fixed and taking advantage of the water and nutrients to help it grow.

Such roots mold themselves to the rock and therefore are unlikely to re-establish themselves when attempting to remove the plant and plant it elsewhere. But a small seed, mixed with a dry but slightly moistened soil can live and grow well, or it can also be cultivated in cracks between stones where, with a bit of luck, it will germinate. Individual plants can send their own roots deep into the cracks. If you sow the seed on the surface of a compost of light clay pots and when your roots have filled the pot, empty it and press each small plant in the place you have chosen do not forget that the plant should be in contact with the ground between the stones.
The flower Astrantia major or female sanícula has a disheveled aspect showing the sharp symmetry and the sharp points, drawing before our stars green and white stars. The Astrantia has a long association with horticulture and herbalism. It is a native European plant. It has an extensive system of roots and enjoys the soils in humid meadows and in the margins of the forests. The flowers are flowered from May to October in the stems branched up to 60 centimeters high. The leaves are clapped, bright green and form vigorous mounds. From the female sanctus excellent dried flowers are made.

To cultivate it better to do it in a heavy and humid soil and choose a place in the shade. When planting in sunnier places, it is particularly important to add a lot of humus. Straw compost will retain moisture and help suppress weeds. We must water it abundantly if we cultivate it in dry weather, especially if the plants are only recently planted. Astrantia is difficult to grow from the seed, unless it is sown very fresh. Many people put pots under the flowers when they see that they are producing seeds that are then taken to a warm place.
The ideal is to plant the root peonies in October-November while the soil is still warm. Plants grown in containers can be planted at any time. Peonies prefer heavier soils (but not flooded), in a sunny or slightly shaded place. Mix a lot of organic material in the planting hole and add sand in very heavy soils. Do not plant the peonies too deep. The roots of the peony should be no more than 3-5cm below the surface of the soil. If you plant them deeper they may not flower well. For the same reason, avoid covering with a lot of compost soil, as this will gradually bury the crown. The new flowers should bloom next season, but it can take up to three years before your plant starts to bloom.

Herbaceous peonies will grow well in a pot for a few years, but their large root system will force them into the garden. They must be protected from the sun and nourished with an earth compound with extra grain and lime. In March you can put on the ground of your flower wood ash rich in potassium, although in good soil, it is not essential. In poor soils this will increase flower production. Peonies do not need watering unless it is a very dry spring. If you want large grains of flowers, cut the side shoots in April or May. Always leave at least a quarter of the stems in each plant to make photosynthesis and feed the root in summer and early fall.
For best results, dahlias should be planted from mid-April to May in most areas. You can plant the dahlias, at about the same time you plant your garden. Dahlias need a sunny place to live. An area that receives direct light for at least 8 hours will be the best. Less sunlight equals higher plants and less blooms. An exception is places with hot climates, where flowers need sunlight in the morning, shade in the afternoon. The soil must be hot, well drained at planting and in a sunny and open place. If you have a heavier soil, add sand, moss or manure to alleviate and loosen the texture of the soil for better drainage.

The bone meal is ideal at the time of sowing, put a small handful in the hole and mix well before sowing. However, be careful if you have pets or other animals around, they are attracted to the bone meal and can dig their flowers. The PH level of your soil should be 6.5-7.0, slightly acidic. We should not water the dahlias until the buds appear above the ground. Do not use organic material to cover the dahlias, since it does not allow the soil to warm up and the flowers to sprout properly. Your dahlias will be more beautiful and will grow better when planted in your garden or garden soil. Even if you think you do not have the best soil, this soil will be better for them so there is no need to bring new soil.
