How To Plan A Three Season Flower Bed

The ideal flower bed is one that is full of colorful blooms all the way from early spring to late fall. Easy to say, but not so easy to achieve. It will require some careful planning starting with choosing the best location for the bed. Then there is the question of shape, whether formal or less so, and color scheme. All this before you even think about the choice of plants. This article by Marianne Lipanovich which I found on the Houzz website fills in the details.

A flower bed filled with masses of color to grab your attention, blooming from spring through fall ? what could be better in any garden? If what you want is a flower bed filled with masses of the same plant, such as a bed of impatiens or roses, it?s easy to get it right. But if you hope to have a judicious mix of colors and shapes and flowers that will fill the space throughout the growing season, you?ll need to take some time to plan ahead and follow some basic design guidelines.
