4 Steps to Improve Your Flower Garden:
1. The essentials for your flower garden
A flower garden must always have a good supply of sunlight, water, and healthy soil. Lack of any of these will cause your flowers to grow unhealthy and they might not live long.
Water your garden more frequently during hot climate.
Add more fertilizer and mulch to the soil when your flowers are blooming and growing.
Organic Compost and Mulch can be made at home with household things.
A good compost and mulch can really boost your garden.

All flowers need sunlight but not all flowers need the same amount of sunlight. Some flowers may do better in shady area rather than an area with direct or too much sunlight. Keep in mind what flower you want to grow and decide on a good position for them.
2. Perennials and Annuals
Perennials are flowers that do not need to be replanted since they bloom every season for many years.
Annuals are flowers that bloom for only one season.
Mixing your flower garden with perennials and annuals will ensure you have flower blooms all year round.
3. Deadheading for more flower blossoms
When you notice your flower head wilting, snip it off. This process is called deadheading. Deadheading will help your plant to stop using its energy for wilting flowers and focus on growing new flowers.
When you snip off the wilting flowers, make sure you discard them off properly. If you leave them around the plant they are prone to catch plant diseases and pests.
4. There are good bugs
Garden insects are not bad for your plant. In fact, most garden insects are good for your garden. Butterflies and bees are well-known pollinators. Your flower garden is going to rely on pollinators to survive and grow healthy
