What different kinds of plants/flowers could I put in my gardens so I would have something blooming all year long?

Most annuals and perennials have a specific bloom period so you'll want to plant things that will give you a succession of blooms. Right now you can plant cool season annuals. Pansies, snapdragons, ornamental kale, and primroses will provide color right through fall and up to winter. In the spring you can plant more cool season annuals and perennials, add some summer blooming plants and bulbs, and then some fall bloomers. There are literally hundreds of plants to include in your garden. Just do a little research to see which ones will begin to bloom when the others are beginning to fade. It will take a little time to find just the right plants for your garden but once you do, you should have some color from late winter through late fall. Enjoy your garden!
