I love having beautiful flowers blooming all around the house in the spring and summer, but I’m no green thumb! And a lot of the DIY garden articles I love to read do not have the same definition of “low maintenance” or “easy-care” that I do! I don’t even bother with indoor plants anymore and I have a long history of killing outdoor plants by neglect. I just get too busy for all the weeding, trimming, deadheading, watering, splitting and replanting. Besides, our vegetable garden takes up most of my time in the summer. So I need a flower garden plan that looks nice and grows just fine without me 99% of the time. Over the years, I’ve hit on a couple flower gardening principles that really work for us. I’ll never be featured in Better Homes and Garden, but hey, our house looks nice!
