The very first step to making a flower garden is to decide where you want to put it and how much sunlight the spot gets. More than 6 hours is full sun and under 3 is shady. The spot I picked for my new flower garden is somewhere in between so it’s considered part sun. It’s important to figure out how much sun your garden is going to get so you can buy the right kind of plants that will thrive in your conditions.
I am putting my new flower garden bed in to help disguise an ugly well pump; here in New Hampshire there aren’t many towns that have a public water supply and most of us have a well for water. I honestly don’t know why I haven’t done this before now! This is my third Spring living here and I can’t stand looking out my windows and looking at the rusty ‘ole thing!
