Flower gardens, used for beautification purposes, contain various flowering plants providing blooms all year long and can be elaborate or simple.
Flower gardens come in all shapes, sizes, and colors. Formal flower gardens are planned out and serve as a multi-function garden, such as growing herbs around the border of a flower garden with edible blooms. Shrubs are also used in creating flower gardens suitable for plants requiring shade. A haphazard flower garden is one that is allowed to grow in a controlled area that consists of wildflowers consisting of annuals, biennials, or perennials, allowing for various blooms all season long.
‘Flower garden in a box’ provides the gardener with seeds and a diagram for planting in order to achieve the perfect flower garden. Seed mats allow for the easy placement of a flower garden, by laying out the mat in the desired shape or location.
A cutting garden is grown specifically for using the blooms inside for decoration rather than outside and is not planned out to be esthetically pleasing to the eye. Cutting gardens may contain herbs used in the kitchen as well as ornamental vegetables.
