Flowers near the house always look aesthetically pleasing and beautiful. Some plants can even serve as a talisman. Read the article by SSPDaily to find out what flowers to plant to bloom all summer and make your yard look good.

Planting rules: where to start

It is very important to consider some points before you start planting flowers. First of all, pay attention to which side of the house the windows are located. If they are on the south side, then you should plant tall bushes or trees in front of them, which will create a pleasant shade in hot weather.

The amount of light is another important factor. Some plants like direct sun, while others can be harmed by the sun's rays. This factor is also taken into account when transplanting plants from one place to another.

You also need to think about the soil on the site. Each flower has its preferences. Some prefer to grow in black soil, while others like loose and light soils. The acidity of the soil is also an important factor.

Watering is a part of flower care. Find out how much and how often you need to water certain plants. If you plant flowers that love moisture in direct sun, you will have to water them very often.

What flowers to plant to please the eye near the house

Petunia. This plant is usually planted in pots and placed on the terrace. But it will also look great in the garden. It is recommended to sow seeds for seedlings on the surface. In a week or two, the first sprouts will appear. As soon as the frost is over, the petunia can be planted outdoors. A distance of 30-35 cm must be maintained between the plants. With proper care, petunia will bloom from spring to fall.

Lavender. The sprouts of this plant appear 14 days after sowing, and it can be planted in the ground when the spring frosts have passed. Lavender loves the sun, and its smell will scare away mosquitoes, flies, insects, moths, and other pests from the house. Therefore, it is recommended to plant it under the windows of a bedroom or children's room. It will bloom until October.

Asters. These flowers come in a variety of shapes, sizes, and colors. There are more than 500 perennial varieties alone. Asters grow in the garden from May to November (it all depends on the variety you choose). Therefore, even in late autumn, the garden will remain colorful and bright. Aster flowers are propagated from seeds, by dividing the bush or by cuttings. They grow quickly and quite densely. Light and non-acidic soil is suitable for them, so the asters will grow throughout the garden.

Yarrow. This is not just a medicinal plant, it also has delicate white flowers. Today there are many decorative forms. Yarrow is unpretentious and grows well even on stony, poor, but properly drained soils. The ornamental yarrow is not only white (it can be red, yellow, or pink). It blooms continuously from June to September. It can easily withstand cold or prolonged drought. Therefore, even if you do not take care of this plant, it will survive.

Phlox. The flowers come in different shapes, sizes, and colors, and have an incredibly pleasant smell. There are spring- and summer-flowering, shrub, and ground cover phloxes, so there is plenty to choose from. The plant feels good on any soil and can survive the winter without any problems. If you plant phlox in a group, you can create a beautiful ensemble. They grow well everywhere except steep slopes and tree trunks.
