If you're planning on planting a flower bed, there are some things that you really need to know! Especially if you're planting a flower bed late in the year. After years of planting late in the season (every season) I've come up with some tricks and tips that will keep your flowers and plants looking absolutely beautiful and vibrant even if you transplant them just before fall starts (the end of the summer is the best time of the year to get great deals on flowers, especially perennials.) Without further ado, these are my tips for planting your flowers in your flower bed or garden late in the season!
1. Buy Late Blooming Plants
If you're planning on planting a flower bed late in the season, you should buy some late blooming plants so that you still get a little color before the weather changes. You can tell when a plant is going to bloom by looking at the written information on the plastic stake that comes with the plant. If you're one of those people that likes to plan really far ahead you can look up late blooming plants on the web before you go to the nursery!
