Caring for Perennials
Perennials are great looking plants that can last for years if cared for properly. As spring time approaches it is a great time to start caring for your perennials or begin planting new ones. Below are four ways to care for your perennials that will keep them healthy for a long time.
After planting your perennials be sure to lay a 2-3 inch deep layer of soil around the base of the plant. By doing this you will be helping the plant contain moisture and stop weeds from growing.
If your perennials have been in the ground for a couple years and are starting to grow to the point of overcrowding themselves you should dig them up and split the plant in half and re-plant.
Each perennial is different in terms of watering. A good rule is to make sure you are keeping them watered regularly for the first year to make sure they last.
If you have rich soil you do not need to worry about feeding, but if you do not have good soil to plant in, simple fertilizer will work with perennials.
