Preplanned Garden

Here is my preplanned garden design, a sunny garden plan for perennials that bloom all summer.

This is a small flower bed plan for companion flowering plants that are very low-maintenance.

My companion planting chart has a selection of perennials that like the same soil, and they all love the sun.

This preplanned perennial garden makes it so easy for you to build a flower bed that has beautiful colors and plants that look great together.

You can purchase all the plants by clicking on the plant name next to the pictures down below.

The Planned Garden Bed Below is 6 x 3 feet.

Perennials That Bloom All Summer

All the perennials for this sunny garden design are hardy to zones 4-9 and they will flower all summer long.

I have personally selected all the plants for this sunny summer-blooming border for their texture, color, form and easy of care.

The thing they want is full sun and well-drained soil. If your soil doesn’t drain well, build a raised bed a foot high at least.
