How To Make Sure Your Wildflowers Survive In Your Home Garden

Aug 17, 2007
If you have ever taken a walk in the woods you may have seen all the beautiful flowers that can be found right in nature. These flowers are wild, but are still beautiful. Did you think to yourself, I wonder what these would look like in my yard? If you have wondered this same thing, here are a few tips for you to make sure your flowers will survive.

Even though these flowers are strong enough to grow and thrive in the wild, does not mean they will not take special care. First thing you will need to do is make sure you are ready for your wild flowers once you get them home. Once you take the flowers out of their natural habitat you will want to get them back in the ground as soon as possible. Make sure you have you flowerbed at your home ready to go when you arrive.

You will want to make sure you have a good water drainage system in place. You may have to dig deep and place some rocks in the soil to ensure good drainage. You will want to make sure the soil is moist and ready to support its new life.

When you get your wild flowers make sure you get some roots and soil with it. The roots will help the flower stay alive and adapt to its new home. You will also want to make sure it has some of its natural soil from the woods to help it thrive. You can not expect the plant to thrive if you change everything about its surroundings.

When you are choosing your flowers you need to pay attention to the environment around them. You will want to take note of what other flowers are near this flower, if any. Maybe this flower grows best if it is only surrounded with its own. If this is the case you should do the same at your home. You want to make your flowers new home as much like its natural home as you possibly can.

You should also make sure the flower is done blooming. Plants tend to survive a transplant better if they are moved after they are done blooming. You may need to go out in search of your wild garden more than once, depending on what kind of flowers you like. You can choose flowers so that you have some in bloom from March until the first frost. This is a great way to make your garden look great for a long time. If this is what you would like to do you will definitely need to go wild flower hunting more than once. This will take some time and effort, but will be well worth it when you have a beautiful garden of wild flowers to admire.
