If your beautiful flower garden is fading as the cold sets in, the flowers in this article might be great options to keep your garden going. Read on for the best winter flowers to grow in the upcoming season:
LADY SLIPPER ORCHIDS
Lady slipper orchids emanate strength and beauty and are easy to take care of in the winter. To grow them, buy the orchids and plant them in potting bark. Put the orchid out of direct sunlight, but position it in an area where it will still be able to get some light. A window facing away from the sun might be a good idea. Water it every week.
These beautiful flowers bloom strong and big from late fall through spring. Buy fresh seeds and plant them in potting soil. Keep them outside until Christmastime, at which point these can be brought indoors or kept outdoors. If you bring them inside, they sprout right away, but if you keep them outside, they sprout in late winter. When they grow to two inches tall, plant them in the permanent place where you want to keep them.
‘Tis the season to be jolly! These merry plants make for a happy, colorful, bright Christmas, and they’re easy to take care of. Bring your plant home and get it set up with potting soil in a ceramic flowerpot. Water as frequently as you need to in order to keep the soil moist. These look beautiful indoors, so if you choose to keep them in their ceramic flowerpots, place them decoratively on a windowsill or shelf.
These flowers are pure elegance and sophistication, with upward pointed leaves and stunning color. Bring your plant home and plant it in a flowerpot with potting soil. Water it as often as you need to in order to keep the soil slightly moist. The potting soil can go for a day or two with dry soil, but avoid keeping it dry for too long. In the winter, humidity can become a problem, so mist them occasionally with a spray bottle. Keep these as house plants or outdoor garden additions.
These sturdy yet pretty flowers are a wonderful addition to your winter garden, with a honeyed scent and vivid petals. Bring your plants home and plant groups of snowdrops a couple of inches apart in the ground. Snowdrops don’t like flowerpots and prefer to grow outside, amongst shade and by trees and shrubs. Water on a regular basis and fertilize every so often, and soon, you’ll have a collection of these serene, white beauties!
