Starting to grow flowers and plants from seeds may feel like a huge challenge. However, if you choose the right types of plants, you will find that it is a manageable task. In some cases, the seeds will start to sprout and grow from the soil where you sow them. Some plants will thrive in cooler temperatures so they are great for the spring garden. Read on to learn more about the best flowers for spring gardeners!
If you want to have blue flowers in your beautiful garden, this is the one for you. Check out the bachelor’s buttons, also known as cornflowers. You can sow seeds directly in the ground after the last frost date in your area. If the winter season is mild, you can even sow the seeds in the fall. Cover the seeds with 1/8 inch of soil. Then, thin them when the seedlings are about 4 inches tall. Grow your flowers in partial shade to full sun.
You can start growing sweet peas indoors four weeks before the last frost date. When spring is short, this early start will give them time to bloom before it becomes too hot.

Cover the seeds with one and a half inches of soil. Grow the flowers in full sun for the best results.
Sow the seeds in the ground or in containers when the soil can be worked in spring. Then, cover with about a quarter inch of soil. Thin the seedlings to 12 inches apart. Try sowing the seeds in fall for spring blooms if the climate is hot.
