3 The best kind of flowers to grow will depend on where you live, and the kind of light the flower needs. It is important to plant the flower in the right light or it may not grow at all. Flowers need different kind of light to grow. These are full sunlight, partial sunlight, partial shade or full shade. Plants come with a tag to help you.
4 Some favorite flowers are zinnias, petunias, lilies, marigolds and begonias, daisies and sunflowers.
5 Most people who plant flowers will first decide where they want to plant the flowers. There are many kinds of flower boxes or pots you can build or buy. Gardeners like to plant rows of flowers, too.
6 After picking out the kind of flower and where to plant the flowers, you will need to get materials. Get fresh rich dirt, potting soil and water. If you are planting in the ground, dig a hole for each plant. If you are using a flower box or pot, mix the dirt and soil. Place it in the box or pot and pack it down. Now, for all planting, dig the holes about 2-4 inches deep. Carefully place your flower plant in a hole and pack dirt around it a little higher than the plant bottom. Last, water your plants. Water them to soak in the soil, but not too much to have standing water.
7 Check your plants daily to see if the soil is still damp. Water when it is not damp.
8 Good Luck!
