Longing for the spring sun, we will spend more and more time outdoors. As the worldwide circumstances are forcing us to spend more time at home, it is important to arrange your own terrace or balcony in the most pleasant way. We can give coziness to these spaces by choosing a wide variety of interior accessories, but at the time of spring, you mainly want to think about various plants and blooming flowers. What innovations prevail in landscaping? What plants to choose to provide privacy and long-lasting solutions? What if we can only grow plants in pots?
Plant Around the Terrace
In the past, the ornamental low flower beds planted in various shapes and patterns were on top. Now the flower beds are growing taller, and it is becoming important not to have one plant, but the whole plant composition and system. When the plants grow together, they intertwine with each other and resemble the paintings painted by the artist, which is beautiful and functional. Such perennial flower beds, which are densely grown close to each other, will always require less care than traditional planting with large gaps between plants. The main tip: plant the plants more densely so that they do not have gaps when they grow up. This covers the bare ground, leaving no room for weeds.
Higher plants create privacy and coziness, so conifers are perfect for this. If the terrace is in the shade, it is possible to plant yew trees with included flowers on the bottom layer to add some colors. Plant Calamagrostis known as Reed Grass that sprout quite early in the spring and stack inflorescences in early summer that look ornamental until next spring. This is a great plant if we want to give privacy to the terrace and the plot itself will look modern. By the way, between the perennial lentils can be inserted different perennial flowers, which would change each other, and we would have innovations in our flower garden all year round.
Plants in Pots
If you choose pots, then you need to think about whether you will go the traditional path and grow annuals or choose the less so-called path and grow perennials. Growing annuals is not difficult: the most important thing is to water and fertilize in time and these plants will delight you as much as possible throughout the season. When growing perennial plants, it is important not only that they look good, but also survive during the wintertime. If we allow perennials into our patios and pots, we have a larger selection of plants that can decorate our plot. Some of them, such as catnip, sage, vixen can look amazing in the first year even if you grow them for just one year.
Almost all plants can certainly be grown in pots, but the main reason why they do not survive the cold period is soaking the roots. When we grow plants in the soil, the cold twists their roots just like in a pot, but the plants in the pot thaw faster in the spring, and if the warmed water has no way to escape, the plant blinks in the pot. Root soaking is tolerated by a rare plant, as a result, you have to pay more attention.
