One of the most popular types of annual flowers for spring planting is the California poppy. These are easy to grow plants that add an elegant touch to any flower garden. If you are a beginner or you are looking for a plant to purchase in the spring, this is one plant that will please you. You can purchase poppies from any florist or nursery in your area and plant them yourself at home. If you want to save some money on these poppies and still get them as nice as those that you purchase in the spring, you can transplant them yourself.
You should have a nice place to grow these plants, which could be inside if you live in an apartment or outside if you live in a more temperate climate. In a warm climate, they do well outdoors. It all depends on where you live, though, because some plants are very delicate and need to be planted in the shade. Poppies are not one of these plants, so you should consider this before digging them up and planting them.
The other consideration is size. If you have a flower garden, you can usually get the recommended spacing for each type of flower. Many gardeners do this on purpose when they are ready to plant their new blooms, but it does take practice to get the distances right. If you do take a chance and do not give the plants enough space, the flowers will bloom unevenly.
Some plants like this also grow in clusters. If you have a nice spot to plant these clusters, then by all means, plant several of them. Just be sure you do not over do it because then the blossoms will not have as much color or bloom. You just need a nice even spread. Just remember that a single stem plant will never have as much bloom as a cluster of stems.
You can always mix and match plants and colors for a unique look. Just take care that the color of the plants do not contrast each other too much. You do not want your home to be overwhelmed with bright pink and orange flowers that are competing with each other.
As for spacing, do not try to take away the whole area of the area where the flowers are going to bloom. Instead, leave some space between the plants to allow room for the blooms to open up. You do not want the flowers to be in a tight circle either. This will make the overall look too busy. Just take a little and let the flower space to open up naturally.
Most annual flowers for spring planting will stay green throughout the season. They will change color during the hottest times though, so check the blooms before you plant them. You do not want your home to be covered in flowers as well as the weeds. If you need to give them some shade during the hotter parts of the year, then buy or grow plants that can survive in partial shade during those times.
Remember that you do not have to plant everything in a row. You may space the flowers out a bit and then continue in that way until all of the flowers have bloomed. You can even mix and match flowers and plants for a unique look. You may also want to consider growing annuals in a container. These can be planted in an area that does not get much sun during the summer months. They will survive just fine indoors.
