If you plan to sell your house, it stands to reason that you would want it to look and feel great when the first buyers come to visit. That means you might want to decorate, fix up all the most important (and most visible) areas, and maybe plant some trees, bushes and flowers.
Now, for planting a flower garden, it really matters when you do it. If you plant your flowers too late, you run the risk of having them sprout well after the first buyers arrive, so they won’t really be “wowed” by a few leaves and buds here and there. On the other hand, plant them too early, and the flowers that have appeared a month or two after you planted them might already be gone.
If you want to go for curb appeal, it’s a good idea to plant your flowers a little earlier than May. Selling in June means you should already have your listing up at the end of May, so buyers should already be lining up a couple of weeks after your realtor set up the listing on the MLS. That means the flowers should be in full bloom by then.
Depending on how quickly certain flowers grow, you can time it quite precisely. In general, it will take some flowers only 2-3 weeks to bloom, while others might take longer. Be sure to check on each individual flower, but avoid planting much sooner than the end of April, since the soil might still be too cold at that time.
