All of us gardeners tend to get into a gardening routine each year. We know what types of veggies, herbs and flowers we prefer to plant. Sure, we’ll experiment every once in a while with something new or exotic, but there are always favorites that make a reappearance each year. |
If you have recently moved out of state or have plans to move, make sure you take some time to consider your new environment from a gardening perspective. Every plant, including flowers, has an ideal growing environment. For example, certain flowers require a frost before they can grow and bloom. Other flowers struggle in cold temperatures or wither in dry climates.
When you move, determine if your growing zone has changed. If you are moving to a significantly different climate (Mississippi to California or Texas to Wisconsin, for example) you will likely be in a different growing zone. Check the growing zones of each of your favorite flowers to see if they will work well in your new environment. If not, don’t despair! You may be able to pot your favorite blooms indoors. You could also consider this a wonderful opportunity to try some new flowers that are better suited for your new environment. Think of this as a chance to fall in love with a whole new group of flowers!
