Truthfully, I was absolutely frightened by official garden styles like that when I initially began gardening (and I still kinda am!).

Next, get the plants that will grow the highest, and put them in the middle of the garden (or in the back of the garden if it’s up versus a fence or something).
You’re not planting anything yet, simply searching for the positioning you like, so keep whatever in the pots in the meantime. (If your plants was available in flats instead of pots, you can quickly cut the cells apart with scissors).
As soon as you find out a positioning you like for the taller plants (do not fuss over it excessive, you can constantly move it as soon as you have all the other plants put), get the next highest plants.
You can utilize these plants to complete between the taller plants, put them in front of the taller plants, or around them if you choose.
Continue layering much shorter and much shorter plants (including the ground cover plants last) till you have actually put all of your plants.
Now, take an action back and see if you like it.
If not, re-arrange things till you create a yearly flower garden style you enjoy.

Because whatever is still in pots, you can keep moving things around up until you discover the best design for your yearly flower garden, and there’s no rush to get it all performed in one day.
In some cases I discover it handy to take a couple of images too, which can assist you find out what’s missing out on or lost.

Now that you discovered a style that you like, all you need to do is pop the plants in the dirt!
Leave whatever right where it is, and work to plant them one at a time so you do not lose your style (this is where the pictures assist too, simply in case you move a lot of things while you’re planting things).
I discover that planting whatever is the part the goes the fastest after I determine my style.
