Mixed Flower Beds

Mixed flower Beds is actually the Center of intesive Gardening for the Amateur and Professional Gardeners. Growing Flower beds is originally from the European Peasent Garden. The same which

was influenced by Monastery Gardens. As opposed to that, Asian Garden Cultures - in Persia, Japan or China - nobody grows seperate Flower Beds. The mixed Flower Bed evolved primarily in the natural Engish Garden in the last 200 Years.

One of the most important Elements of the English Garden is - the Flower Bed - a Border between the Lawn and the Bush, Fence or Trees, or along a Road that leads to the House Gate. Its a mixture

of durable Perrenial Flowers , with the addition of Bushes , Geophyts and Annual Flowers, which has reached the Status of Art.

There are Prize bearing Contests for Planning and maintaining these Flower Beds. Here you have Wide Support to the Expression of Aesthetics and Art by choosing the Plant materials and integrating them, it also requires Great Spritual Effort for planing Constant Bloom which is fit for the given Territory. There are endless variations of Mixed Flower Beds, for Example a Blue Flower Bed, which is made up of Flowers in a Variety of Blue Shades, that are carefully

combined with Great Attention to the Transition from a stronger Shade to more Gentle and Diffrent Ones in Shape and Structure.

When one travels in european path, he surely will notice the flower carpets , composed of a variety of color, in most seasons , from spring to late fall.

In the begining of the century, there was a famous gardener in germany , carl farster, author of the book "flower garden of the future". he layed the foundation for introducing the perrenial flowers

to garden culture and had a tremendous effect on it's distribution. today, there exist many nurseries that specialize in these plants. their catalogues contain dozens of varieties from the same species

and a great quantity of plants from all corners of the globe.

A Few Principles for planning out the mixed flower bed

First we'll mention a number of rules , that will assist us to plan the composition of the flower bed.

1.Botanical diversity. it is important not only visually, but it also has a good mutual effect on plant health and fertility of the soil.

2.Correct planning of your space correspondingly with height and width of the plant material. one must allocate a territory of development which is enough for every plant, according to the

natural size in the bloom phase. in a general manner we rank the plants by height - Short, Medium and Tall. This Diffrence allowes us to make intresting combinations , when mostly we position the

short plants in the front and the tall ones in the back.

3.The bloom continuum. one must distinguish between waves of bloom and a bloom continuum. it is easy to plan a wave of bloom in spring, but its much harder to reach that in the middle of summer, fall or late fall. infact , a winter bloom wave may occur as well. between waves one must ensure a continuum of plants that bloom for long periods, such as geranium for example. one must also distinguish between a bloom continuum and flowers that bloom for short periods.

for example , you may sow with certain time spaces in order to get acontinuus bloom. i propose three dates of sowing summer flowers - march , june and august. winter flowers may be sown at least two or three times (august,october and january).
