7 Secrets To Have More Blooms In The Garden

Want more flowers in your garden? Here’re 7 tips you should know to keep your plants blooming more than they ever did.

1. Use Rich Soil

Soil that is loamy and rich in organic matter like aged compost or well-rotted manure provides plenty of nutrients constantly to the plants. It also encourages bacterial activity, which promotes soil fertility. Add some compost or manure to the soil when planting your flower bed and add them from time to time.

2. Deadhead More

Deadheading flowers for more blooms

Most plants grow better and have more flowers if their wilted and faded blooms are plucked often. Whenever you see the spent flowers, remove them, so the plant can direct its energy on forming more flowers and buds. Wilted flowers waste energy and sap. They also attract insects and diseases. Also, by cutting off the faded flowers, you prevent plants from seeding.

3. Fertilize the Plants

To have more flowers, feed the plants regularly during the growing season with half-strength liquid fertilizer. A flowering fertilizer should be used that has more phosphorus than nitrogen, as phosphorus is the element that promotes more flower buds. Also, you can mix time-based fertilizer in the soil at the beginning of the growing season.

4. Provide More Sun

Light is essential for the plant’s growth. Direct sunlight for several hours a day can be a prerequisite for many plants that come to flower. However, shade-loving plants tend to reduce the number of flowers when exposed to more sun.

5. Nurse the Roots

To have healthy plants and abundant blooms–nurse the roots, and remember that it is through them the plants absorb nutrients and water from the soil. When you perform the transplant or when you dig soil around the plant, be careful not to cut or damage the roots as if being damaged plant would take a while to recover, or it may die.

6. Apply Mulch

Plants growing in a mulched soil are usually more vigorous, less prone to pests and diseases.

7. Do Moderate Watering

Excess watering tends to favor the development of foliage but can also produce the absence of flowering. Similarly, the lack of water can cause the plant to drop the flower buds. The best way is to do moderate watering (avoiding both overwatering and underwatering) during the flowering season.


Bonus Tip

#Keep them Slightly Root Bound

If you’re growing flowering plants in containers, it’s best to keep them slightly root-bound. This way, they will focus less on root development and bloom prolifically.
