Flower Planting Instructions

Overview

Starting a garden for the first time can be challenging if you're a beginner. Fortunately, planting an eye-catching flower garden isn't very difficult, and even the novice gardener can create a one-of-a-kind wonderland of flora in her yard to be admired by everyone.

Step 1

Locate and measure an 8' by 8' plot of land in which to plant your garden flowers.

Step 2

Break up the ground in the spot you've chosen, using the garden hoe. If the ground is hard, and you live in a dry region, try soaking the area with a garden hose first.

Step 3

Pour all of the peat moss, soil and compost onto the broken garden earth.

Step 4

Stir the compost, soil and peat moss into the broken garden earth thoroughly, using the hoe.

Step 5

Scatter the wildflower seeds from the packets, making sure to shake them all over the plot of land.

Step 6

Spray water over the area to completely saturate it, and water again every four days, or more frequently in hot weather, keeping the seeds moist until the flowers sprout.

Things You'll Need

  • Peat moss (20 lb.)
  • Potting soil (20 lb.)
  • Worm compost (10 lb.)
  • Flower seed packets (wildflower)
  • Garden hoe
  • Tape measure
