How To Plant Flowers
Get off to a good start in your garden.
Plant breeders still haven’t developed flowers that plant themselves, so it’s up to you. Follow these easy steps.
Set plants atop the ground before you plant so you can space them evenly.
Soak the plants while they’re still in their pots.
Use your fingers or a pencil to gently pry apart matted roots so they’ll spread into the soil, not remain in a ball.
Add a couple of tablespoons of slow-release flower food to the bottom of each hole, and then stir with your trowel to mix it evenly into the soil before inserting plants.
