There’s nothing quite like walking outside in early spring and breathing in the smell of fresh flowers. Your fragrant garden will attract pollinators and make your yard more enjoyable to spend time in.
Many of the scented flowers will be in bloom from spring to fall depending on the variety. We collaborated with Heidrich’s Colorado Tree Farm to create this list of must-haves for your fragrance garden in Colorado.
Before you get started, Heidrich’s recommends this tip for planting your fragrance garden: “Place the garden in a location that you will get the most out of it and where you and your guests will walk past it or by a window that you will have open. Make sure to consider the amount of sun the locations gets as you will get better bloom production with full sun exposure. Be sure to place plants together by their water needs as well. This will ensure that one is not drowning or staying too dry in the area. Deadheading, by cutting off the old blooms, will ensure more bloom production as well.”
