Making a perennial garden can be fun and easy


First, you need to put fertilizer in the area. Perennials are not “heavy feeders” they will be just fine with one application per year of fertilizer. Next thing your garden needs is water. Perennials require little water compared per say a vegetable garden, and if you choose the right location and mulch around the plant, then you may not have ever to water them. But if you live in drier climate areas then the best way to water your perennials it waters the bases of the plants. Mulch is another great item to add to your perennial garden. Placing mulch all around the bottom of the plants will help keep weeds to a minimum.

One essential tip that you need to do to keep your perennial garden looking its best is called deadheading. Some of your perennials will not let their dead flowers drop off their stems, so if you notice some of your perennials retaining their dead flower heads remove them. It will often stimulate your flower to re-bloom a new flower in its place. Planting and taking care of a perennial garden is very simple especially if you follow just a few steps to keep your plants healthy and to look their very best.
