Hi, this is Yolanda Vanveen on behalf of Expert Village. In this series we're talking about flower gardening. And in this segment we're going to talk about how many plants to plant in one group, and how do plant them. Again, gardening is like throwing a party. You never want to invite someone over and put them in the corner all by themselves. You don't want to time-out your friends, and you don't want to time-out your plants. They want to be in groups, and they can be in groups of different plants too! They don't have to just be one plant. But a mass grouping is what plants do naturally, so in your garden always plant them in groups of three or more. Thats my basis, and I put a triagle, so I always put bulbs in a group of three. And or plants even larger. Trees you put one here or one there, but usually in the whole area too in your planting section, I still try to put three trees. It seems to work and it makes your garden look even. And every thing looks really good when it's in groups. And you never know what your plants or your friends will do at parties. Once you put them in a group, let them be, and the rest we'll wait and see! In the next section we're going to talk about how to mix spring and summer blooming flowers.
