When you first get started growing flowers, you will want to use some different names for your flower garden. As you learn more about gardening, you will likely come up with your own personal flower garden design. You can use different names for the flower varieties that you have grown. The same goes for the different types of plants that you have or are growing.
Many people prefer to use different names for their flower garden. They feel that it makes the garden sound more individual. Others use different names because the garden is in their backyard and they want to make sure it does not have the same name as another garden in their neighborhood. You can easily distinguish between your flower garden and a neighbor’s flower garden just by keeping an eye on your plantings.
Planting a single variety of flower is not a problem. If you have a border garden, you will only have to call attention to one flower type. For instance, if you have a cactus border, you would call that flower something different than the causes, daffodils, begonias and lilies that are typically found on the cactus border. You could also use different names for the different annuals that you have planted. Annuals usually go to seed fairly quickly so they do not have a very long growing season.
A border garden will be a good place to start when you are beginning to plant flowers. You can choose to plant annuals that can have a good growing season and bloom again each year. You can also plant perennials that will live for many years. However, many perennials do not bloom for a long time and must be replanted every few years. The small amount of work and effort that you spend in a single garden is well worth the rewards.
If you are beginning with a single plant, you can usually get away with simply calling it by its scientific name. Many beginners will opt for this method, since it allows them to plant and harvest many flowers without any real knowledge of plant biology. Often, the gardener will grow the flower in the same pot until it begins to flower, at which time it can be transferred to another container. However, if you have seeds that you are not able to get to the correct plant, sometimes a little digging is necessary in order to plant the correct flowers.
After the plant has begun to bloom, you should look up the official plant nomenclature of the flower and determine which official plant name that you should use for your plant. It should be noted that some official plant names are considered to be synonyms, which means that they actually sound the same. Synonyms are usually preferred because they are closer in sound to the flower that you are growing, especially when that flower is of the same family as the one in the garden. However, there are many plants that do not fall into any of the family groups. For example, there are a number of herbs that also have a similar sounding plant name.
The most common way to come up with official flower garden names is to find a few flower names that you particularly like. You can probably find many such names in books on gardening, or in the glossary of the national flower clubs (if you belong to any). Some flower gardeners prefer to use official names rather than names that they themselves create. This way, the garden will appear to be more uniform. In addition, by giving your visitors a general idea of what each flower looks like, your garden will appear far more beautiful than if your guests had only a vague idea of what the names of the plants were.
When you are finally ready to design your flower garden, you will find that there are a number of great sources online that can help you with the process. The key is to make sure that you put some time and effort into coming up with a good name for your flower garden. The flower garden is the best part of your home, and it will be remembered and enjoyed by all who visit it.
