Flower Gardening

Everyone loves a beautiful flower garden, but they don't get to be so beautiful on their own. While many grow them for the enjoyment, as well as for the beauty and sometimes profit, a lot of knowledge and work goes into that beauty! Ask your questions about the propagation, planting, maintenance, trouble shooting, harvesting, enjoyment, and more of flower gardening. Questions about famous flower gardens around the world are welcome, too!

Do perennials come back every year?

User Avatar
Yes! Perennials are plants that live for at least three years and typically bloom for one season each year. Their counterparts are annuals, which have to be replanted yearly, and the lesser-known biennials, which take two years to complete their growth cycle. Although many perennials live a long time, they don't live forever, and some might die in as little as three or five years.

Are succulents easy to grow?

User Avatar
Succulents are beautiful plants that come in a variety of shapes. They typically tend to be easy to maintain. As they are a cousin to cacti, they need lots of sunlight and are very forgiving if you forget to water them.

What plant fertilizer works best on sunflowers?

User Avatar
A normal balanced fertilizer is best for most plants. Just before the plant starts to flower give it some Potash.
