Gardening Tips : Identifying Different Types of Flowers

Posted on

Hi this is Yolanda Vanveen and in this segmentwe are going to talk about how to identify flowers or identifying flowers.

We all havebeautiful flowers in our garden and especially when you buy a home from somebody else youdon't always know what is in your garden.

You have all these beautiful flowers thatcome up and you have no idea what their names are so to identify them is kind of a puzzleit is like a treasure chest where you have to do your time to figure it out and thereis different tricks that you can try to use to identify flowers.

First of all I love tohave flower books so by having all types of flower books in your house with pictures andjust looking through them a lot of times you are going to be able to identify them justby looking through the pictures.

I have more success with that than anything else or youcan go to Flickr which are pictures that people have uploaded and just make it a descriptionof the flower and sometimes just by using a description pictures will come up or youcan get flower catalogs and go to the library or go on line and look at different flowercompanies and see what they offer or you can go to any master gardening booths at the farmer'smarket or call your local extension agency and actually bring your flowers in and letthem try to identify them try to identify it for you.

But I will go through a few flowers,just some basic flowers and maybe some of them will spark your memory and you can figureout what some of your flowers are.

And the point is gardening is like throwing a party.

A lot of times you don't have to know everybody's name to have a good time.

So you can waitaround or ask friends to introduce you to their plants or ask people in their yard whatthe names of their plants are but in the end I think you can enjoy your garden and youcan enjoy your parties without wearing these name tags.
