Here are some tips and tricks on how to pick the best flowers for your flower bed.

1. Sunlight and Water - Most flowers flourish in sunlight, but there are some that may do better in a more shady area. Be sure to choose the right area in your garden for the flowers you have decided to plant. According to Scott's, it’s important that you plant where there is access to water so you can keep them watered and healthy.

2. Pick before they peak - Once you decide which flowers you want in your garden, pick them up at the store before their peak. This means they have not bloomed yet and will bloom later on in your garden, according to loveyourlandscape.org.

3. Plant at the right time to enhance time and color - Planting at the right time can be the key to having your flowers change colors through the season as your flowers continue to grow.
