Many of us are slowly returning to the office, and that means we can’t fully enjoy the perks of being a plant owner. We’ll be busy working all day, and we’ll get home pretty late, but did you know that you can still enjoy the beauty of your garden and flowers even under the moonlight? Yes, it’s called moon garden. It’s currently trending because it feels and looks magical. Some gardeners say that it feels more calming and cooler since you’re chilling in your garden in the evening. It’s a perfect spot to enjoy your cup of tea before going to bed.
The Moon garden is mostly made up of light flowers that open at night. These flowers reflect the moonlight, which makes them look like they’re glowing. Some examples of gorgeous white flowers are:

Some of these flowers like Night Blooming Jasmine, Petunia, and Sweet Autumn Clematis does not only look great under the moonlight, but they also release a sweet fragrance that can help you destress and relax after a long day.
How to Plant a Moon Garden
The first step in learning how to plant a moon garden is to choose a site that’s easy to access. It could be the space in front of your home or maybe a small flowerbed in front of your bedroom window. It’s also important to consider the moonlight. What part of your home does it shine?

You could also add a fountain or birdbath to reflect the light and make your moon garden sparkle.
For the moon garden design, you could plant any trees, perennials, and annuals of your choice. You could create a rock garden made of white rocks to illuminate the darkness.
