The best way to achieve all summer color in your flower beds is to choose perennials with the longest possible bloom time. I have put together a list of the most eye catching flowers that bloom for 8-12 weeks. Since they are perennials, they will come back to life every year to fill your garden with low maintenance beauty.
There is nothing like a hot cup of tea to cure what ails you! Herb gardens are an incredible resource for making herbal tea and medicines at home. Buying bulk herbs can be quite expensive, whereas garden plants and seeds are a one time purchase that will keep producing for years to come.
With height, bloom time and color in mind, you can create an enchanting cottage garden with ease. Your hard work will be repaid with a low maintenance masterpiece you can enjoy year after year. Plus your vegetable garden will thank you for all the added pollination it receives from the bees and butterflies that flock to your flowers.
