Flowers generally need a minimum of 4 hours of direct light per day, so you have to find a place exposed to the sun so that they can have an excellent development. As for the ground we will not have to worry too much, because as long as it has good drainage we will be able to cultivate those that we like the most.

Once the location is decided, we have to prepare the ground. This means that you have to remove stones and wild grasses, delimit the area with stakes for example, and put a anti-weed mesh (if we want).

Choose the plants

Now it’s time to choose the plants that we want to put. Depending on whether we want a permanent or temporary floral border, we can choose one or the other:

  • Geraniums

To finish, we will only have to plant the plants that we have chosen in their final place. You have to take into account the characteristics of each one and not put them too close togethersince although it is very interesting to have a flower carpet, it would not look at all good if the plants do not have the space they need to grow. Therefore, it is good to leave 5-10cm between them.

Thus, we can enjoy the flowers .
