Hello! My name is Jose Zuniga. I am a professional gardener and today I am here to represent expertvillage.com. Well I'm going to guide you step by step different ways to plant your landscaping for snapdragons. There are numerous options on how you can utilize it for your landscaping. For example, they are great as a background. If you have smaller plants, always plant them behind the smaller plants and they are definitely going to be the little wall for your flower bed. One example would be you have a tree out there. Beautify that tree by planting the snapdragons all around in a circle area. They are already going to enjoy the moisture that the tree has. Just add a little bit of mulch to it and you will be able to retain that moisture that is required by the snapdragons. Another option that you have as well is that you can put them in just pots throughout the house would be great. You know outside step stones, that will be fantastic. Another option is definitely you could add a supporter. Let me show you, let me pull one of the snapdragons. We are going to place it right here and as you can see, it is going to give us that glow. What we are looking for is going to be the edge of this plant. It is going to beautify the other plants that are going to bloom in the summer. It's going to be a beautiful border, wonderful bloom, parade of flowers everywhere and on top when this blooms, we are going to have more flowers in the summer and then the roses are just a perfect example of how they can work as borders. So just be creative and be yourself and enjoy. This is how we plant and guide you on your landscaping procedures.
