How to Create a Small Summer Flower Garden

Select a site that receives at least six hours of sunlight daily. Measure your space to plan your garden layout.


Improve soil by adding compost or organic matter for better drainage and fertility.

Soil Preparation

Select summer-blooming flowers like Marigolds, Zinnias, and Coneflowers for constant color.

Choose Plants

Arrange taller plants at the back, medium-height ones in the middle, and shorter ones at the front for optimal display.

Add a layer of mulch to retain moisture, suppress weeds, and keep the soil cool.


Regularly deadhead spent blooms to encourage more flowering. Watch for pests and diseases.
