Er vergräbt ein Ei – und enthüllt einen genialen Trick, den alle Hobby-Gärtner kennen sollten!
The right distance is one of the most difficult things when creating a flower bed. It will take a few years for the plants to be large and close together. However, resist the desire to plant the plants, especially the shrubs, too close together, and be patient. You can always fill the empty rooms with annual flowers or flower pots until the perennials and shrubs develop vigorously.
When you select plants for the front yard, you should think about creating levels. The tallest plants are planted behind, then each row of plants should be stepped down so that the shortest ones are in front. However, do not orient yourself to the size of the plants in the garden center, but read the labels and plan your levels according to the specified height of growth.
If you have difficulty visualizing everything, it may be helpful to draw it first. You can use a photo of the front of your house to draw on it, or you can simply sketch it with circles to get an idea. Even if it’s not perfect or true to scale, sketching can help your creativity bounce back.
This is a perennial flower bed for a sunny place that will delight you with its picturesque bloom even in the first year.
In the background, the two – year – old stock rose ‘Pleniflora’ (1)-in yellow, red and white-together with the perennial sunflower ‘Capenoch Star’ (2) form the perfect backdrop for the other plants in front. The Icelandic poppies (3) come in beautiful citrus colors and combine perfectly with the St. John’s wort ‘Magical Red’ (4). The cardinal lobelia (5) convinces with its magnificent red flowers. The catnip (6), the cushion Bellflower (7) and the blue-flowered rattle flower (8) set violet-blue accents in the foreground. Clove root ‘ fireball ‘(9) blooms over a long period from July to August, while the high fat leaf’ Matrona ‘ (10) delights with its reddish-brown foliage until autumn. The Purple Lily (11) enchants in summer with its bright red flower panicles and stays green in Winter.

Long, narrow flower beds are among the most difficult areas to plant in the garden. With the help of these easy-care, long-blooming flowers, you can turn even a narrow bed into a real eye-catcher. This small space between the entrance and the front entrance is only 3.3 m long and 2.1 m wide, but can still look great! If you repeat a few plants from another spot in the front yard, the two areas are visually connected, and it becomes less clear that this space is so small from a distance. The addition of a small bucket garden provides visitors with an excellent sight as they approach the front door.
