#1: Plan your plants! Perennials usually bloom for 1-2 months; so, with careful planning, you can have something blooming in spring, summer, and fall.
#2: Shake things up. When selecting your plants, choose a variety of heights and textures to create a layered feel, with the tallest plants in the back and the shortest up front. More variety also means more pollinators!
#3: Always plant in odd numbers! When you have a relatively small group of plants, try to arrange them in odd-numbered groups: 3, 5, 7, or 9. Odd groupings are more appealing to the human eye.
#4: Give your plants room to grow (literally). People like having their own space, right? Well, so do plants! By giving your plants adequate room, their roots can spread, and they can get the nutrients, water, and sunlight they need.
#5: Add a pop of personality! When it comes to your garden, your plants are the stars of the show. But you can add some visual interest and create a sense of unified design with fountains, pottery, trellises, obelisks, and statues.
