Keeping Perennial Gardens Well Kept

When planting a new perennial garden, there are easy to follow steps for the best looking garden on your street. Choose a location for your new perennial garden to go. Next prepare the soil; this may be your only opportunity to loosen the soil, remove any rocks in the soil and to add organic matter to the soil to provide your perennials with the best possible soil. If you plan on starting your perennials from seeds then, you might be better off starting them in a nursery bed rather than your garden bed. They need a little more attention than established plants, and they will not have much presence until their second year anyway. Most of your perennials like the daylily should be divided into the early spring months when they have some new growth. Keep your newly planted perennials watered well during the first few weeks. The water needs to get deep enough into the soil to saturate the root ball.
