Dear Gardening Lover,
Colour is what most people are drawn to in a garden and should be tactfully incorporated into your garden design. Colour has a great impact on us "affecting our moods and reflecting our personality" and in the garden it can be used to create the right mood and to invoke different feelings.
Colour will enhance the visibility of your business and bold floral plantings can be changed seasonally, to continually attract attention. Colour will also add value to your home if you are hoping to sell, and can be used to effectively brighten up a dull garden for special occasions like weddings etc.
If strategically placed where they will have the most impact, pots will transform any area of your garden. Many bedding plants grow beautifully in containers, and groupings of flowering pots and hanging baskets will instantly add a warm and welcoming touch to entrances, patios and other areas.
Children love sowing and growing seedlings and will be delighted at their kaleidoscope of colours. Gardening offers many opportunities to teach your children about caring and nurturing, as well as opening up the wonderful world of birds, butterflies, frogs, bees and all the other fascinating creatures that inhabit our gardens.
Good garden design involves knowing how to combine colours so that the final result is the “coming together of theory and reality.” Only practice and experimentation will develop your eye for colour and allow you to see the differences between hues.
If used well, colour will help to lead the eye through the garden; drawing attention to focal points and tying together various other landscaping elements like stretches of lawn or background trees and shrubs.
It will soften and accentuate low walls and pathways and is used to demarcate various "rooms" in the garden, and lead from one to another.
The large selection of flowering bedding plants available in South Africa enables us to have colour in our gardens throughout the year. Bedding plants allow you to incorporate a fresh "new look" every season by using different colour schemes and plant varieties. Combine this with the fast-maturing versatility of annuals and your garden can become a canvas and you the artist!
Do you long to have colourful flowers in your garden throughout the year but are not sure which varieties to plant each season; or when to sow or plant them for best results?
Are you tired of wasting your money on seedlings that either die or do not give you the results you envisioned?
"Growing Bedding Plants in South Africa” is written especially for South African gardeners and covers everything you need to know about growing or your own seedlings. All 78 pages are packed with useful information; like the best planting and sowing times for each variety, as well as ideal germination temperatures and days to flowering.
This e-book is easy to understand, yet includes everything you need to know about successfully sowing and growing beautiful bedding plants in South Africa. I hope it will inspire you to create a beautiful flower garden, no matter how large or small.
Whether you sow your own seeds or buy seedlings from your garden centre, you will find growing bedding plants a most rewarding hobby. I know that the plants I have selected to include in this book will inspire the artist in you; and I hope that you will enjoy reading my book as much as I have enjoyed writing it.
