Caring For Your Garden Guide



One of the most common reasons why people love flowers so much is because of the beautiful
fragrance they emit. A beautiful, natural garden overflowing with scented flowers can brighten
up anyone's day, even after a work week from hell. The smell of flowers connotes happy
occasions such as summer days, birthdays, weddings and celebrations. This is one of the
reasons most gardeners will choose flowers that smell divine as their flowers du jour.

Some of the best fragrant flowers for your garden include Arabian jasmine, banana shrub,
butterfly bush, confederate jasmine, garden phlox, gardenia, heliotrope, hyacinth, angels'
trumpet and roses. All of these have a unique and delicious scent that will leave your outdoor
area smelling beautiful. However, some of the most fragment and beautiful flowers also take
more care than you would expect. To really get that beautiful, spring time freshness smell from
your flowers, keep the following tips in mind:

- Bright, thick and colorful pedals on a flower can suggest a beautiful smell as well. Look
for flowers that have thick colorful petals when choosing flowers. You can also ask the
sales associate at your local garden center about the smell that will be emitted in full

- Fragrant flowers enjoy having company in their garden. One of the ways to increase the
smell of your flowers is to plant trees, vines, perennials and shrubs along the garden bed
with your fragrant flowers. Having neighbors will help your flowers show off their smell.

- To make the most of your garden care smell, think about choosing flowers that bloom at
different times. That way the smells of each flower will not contradict one another and
you will have beautiful and varying smells all season long.

- Most flowers that are lacking in a sweet smell are so because they are thirsty. Make sure
you give your flowers enough water to keep them healthy. In the hot season this may
mean watering them every day or every other day.

- Finally, make sure your flowers have enough moisture and ventilation. Hot and dry
gardens will not fare well for those fragrant flowers. Although they may grow, the smell
will be lacking. Try to plant your flowers in an area where the air is gentle and the
moisture content is high in the air. Humidity is not a fragrant flower's friend.
