Remember, building a flower garden is no childís play hence you need to be careful about not to bite off more than you can actually chew. Start small. Yes, thatís the keyword indeed.

Would you be interested in extending your gardening season throughout the year? Try out the annual flowers this time. As a matter of fact, until recently your choices were only restricted to, impatiens, geraniums, marigolds and red salvia. However today, your small greenhouse can have rather captivating array of choices. To be honest, doesnít really matter if you are actually planting a window box, or may be trying to spruce up your perennial garden, because now the detail, interesting and colorful range of choices keep your needs covered.

Select the impatiens, heliotrope and tuberous begonias to render a whole riot of color to your home greenhouse. Yes, you have heard that right; these are basically the "half-hardy" perennials and can actually survive light frost.

In fact using those in your flower gardens will render a creative blend of texture, color, form and tones, which actually lasts long. Colors also range from sheer midsummer favorites like the Mexican sunflowers and zinnias to the more neutral shades such as pastel stocks and lavatera.

Get creative with your small greenhouse. You can plan and design your flower garden based on other striking aspects as well. Sure there are perennials that are tall and climbing, there are also the short and the bushy ones to limn your garden well. Mix and match the delightful fragrance of the stock, mignonette or the sweet smelling nicotiana, with the striking and captivating foliage of caladium, dusty miller or coleus to make your garden the ultimate abode to relax and unwind!
