What Are The Benefits of Planting Flowering Shrubs at Your Home

Flowering shrubs are not only beautiful plants but they are easy to grow. A well-placed bush can add color and interest to your property, transforming an ordinary green yard into a gorgeous retreat. Flowering shrubs also improve your home’s curb appeal, making it inviting to guests and the envy of your neighbors.

Flowering shrubs not only improve your garden’s health, but they also play a larger role in sustaining the wildlife that surrounds. Flowers blossoms and the nectar they produce attract pollinators such as bees, butterflies, and birds that in turn play a critical role in pollinating other plants ensuring a healthy biotic lifecycle.

How to Pick the Best Flowering Shrubs for Your Property

It’s important to think about what you want out of your flowering shrub before making a purchase. Are you looking for a deciduous shrub that will shed its leaves each year or do you want an evergreen that will retain a richness of color in your yard over the winter months? Are you looking for something small and dwarf for a confined space or a spreading shrub that will help to screen or buffer an eyesore area in your yard?

Choosing the right flowering shrubs often comes down to aesthetic preference as well. Your own personal taste in flower color or leaf hue, as well as the overall color scheme of your home and garden influence which bloom colors you can feasibly choose.

How to Take Care of Your Flowering Shrubs

Caring for your flowering shrub starts the moment you plant it. The majority of flowering shrubs should be planted in the spring or fall, though in a few cases you’d be perfectly fine in summer. Before planting any shrubs in your yard, understand the plants' size at maturity and space accordingly to ensure that you’re giving the shrubs enough room to grow.

You also need to make sure that their placement will allow them enough sunlight to thrive. Dig the plant hole or pit as deep as the root ball and twice as wide. In other words, if you have a say a 3 gallon plant that’s 12” deep and 12’ wide dig the whole 12” deep and 24” width radius.

All flowering shrubs require healthy soil. Be sure that you amend soils as required to allow for proper drainage and oxygen as well as organic material for nutrient content and or fertilizer to supplement the plant's varying needs. A well-balanced soil base is essential for root development and long term plant health Good soils retain minerals and nutrients along with soil moisture which is the vehicle for uptake.

A healthy underlying soils base reduces overall subsequent watering, fertilizer and ongoing maintenance time that would otherwise be required for plants un unhealthy soil. Healthy Roots mean a healthy Plant.
