When you start the process of creating your perfect garden always start with trees than shrubs and then plant flowers, shrubs are best for giving a proper texture and dimension to any garden, it will provide shady and sunny situations for your flowers. If you don’t want a plain green shrub in your garden, choose one which displays berries after its flowers fall like viburnum. Azaleas represents the arrival of spring and forsythia does same in mild climates, for cold weather choose Madonna and for summer go for Marginata.

Try to include spring containers in your garden if you want a perfect bloom, hang small baskets into the garage and shed when temperature fall at night, container plants thrive in cool spring temperatures like petunias, annual lobelia and snapdragons. But in early springs flowers like nasturtium and viola can tolerate early spring frosts.
