Escape the hustle and bustle of everyday life by creating a theme garden dedicated to a feeling of calm and relaxed enjoyment. The flowers in the 'Serenity Garden' will evoke feelings of serenity and warmth in the garden. Anemone blanda blooms with delightful brightly coloured daisy-like flowers on lush green fern-like foliage. Ranuncules asiaticus produces beautiful delicate flowers with tightly clustered petals. They create a spectacular display and make ideal cut flowers. Freesias are among the most popular cut flowers in the world, their intensely sweet fragrance can perfume an entire room. Liatris Spicatris purple: have large bottlebrush like spikes of tiny clustered purple florets and unlike other flowers they open from the top downwards.
How to take care of The Serenity Garden
Plant according to the instructions printed on each package, tall varieties at the back and small to the front. Bulbs are best planted in groups together. Anemones need soaking prior to planting. Plant in well drained soil, prepare the soil by working in some organic fertiliser pellets around a spade deep. In cold areas, apply a thick mulch cover in winter to protect from frost. In warm areas mulch will help to keep the soil cool and retain moisture. Water well after planting and keep doing so for the first month. Soak the soil rather than watering over the plants to prevent fungal diseases. Apply fertiliser during the growth season by means of an general border fertiliser. In autumn store non hardy summer bulbs in a cool but frost-free place, protect from mice. Replant in spring. Remove dead flower heads regularly from all plants to encourage new and bushy growth. Divide plants every 3-4 years in early spring to avoid overcrowding.
Freesias are not hardy and needs to be lifted from the soil once the first frost arrives. Cut back the foliage and store in a cool but frost-free place. Protect from mice and replant in spring.
