Garden season is just a few weeks away and those interested in testing out their green thumb might want to start now. You may want to try gardening because your new home has space to do it in, or maybe you're just looking for a fun outdoor hobby to get into. Whatever the reason behind the urge to garden, the time to start is now.

A great way to try your hand at gardening is to take care of potted plants inside. This can be the perfect opportunity to gain plant care knowledge that you can take with you during your ventures outdoors. You may want to start simple with an option such as Teleflora's Sunny Cyclamen which comes in an elegant cream-colored pedestal planter.

This plant is known for its heart-shaped leaves and blossoms that grow above the leaves, resembling a crown. Cyclamen are delicate flowers that are sensitive to over-watering as well as under-watering. To avoid either issue, try to always make sure the soil is moist, but not saturated. If it gets dried out, the buds will not open or mature. You'll also need to prune this plant to keep it healthy - always remove "spent" buds in order to make room for new ones. This plant also prefers a colder temperature - between 55 and 65 degrees Fahrenheit and only requires minimal sunlight. By the time you've watched these affordable flowers bloom, you'll be ready to venture outdoors.
