How to Garden with Flowering Plants and Vegetables

If you live in New Hampshire and enjoy gardening, you will need to check out what flowers and vegetables will thrive. 

New Hampshire has a changing environment, sometimes even daily, and there is a great variety of plants that will do well. 

For plants that will take to this state's habitat consider:  azaleas, rhododendrons, hydrangea, climbing hydrangeas, star

magnolias and hobblebush.  For vegetables look into growing:  basil, cabbage, broccoli, carrots, parsnips, onions, peppers, and peas.   

Planting flowering plants or transplants:

Dig your hole larger than the plant's root ball, then loosen the soil in the container.

Flip the container upside down with the root ball resting in your hand.  Pull the container with your other hand.

Once you have placed the root ball right side up, cover with loose soil and press down with your hands.  Then water the

plant thoroughly.

If planting bulbs, make sure you plant them in areas with good drainage.  You don't want to flood the plant.

Do not use commercial fertilizer or fresh manure when you are planting bulbs.  

Enjoy your flowers and make sure when cutting them, cut as little foliage as possible; that is where the food is stored for the next season's 

blooming.  Do not trim healthy green foliage, for a beautiful plant next year.
