09 Sep Planting Perennials
If you would like to have a garden filled with colourful flowers but also want something low maintenance, then perennials are what you are looking for. The best part about planting perennials is that they keep multiplying with time, giving you more flowers as the years go by.
Location is very important when you consider where to plant your perennials as most thrive in bright sunshine but a few need shade. Therefore make sure you check the tag on the plant before deciding where to plant it.
Another factor to consider when buying planting perennials is which plants you would like to have, how they would suit your garden and the type of landscape you have in mind. Perennials live a long life so make sure you choose the flowers you would love to wake up to on a daily basis.
Once your garden design has been decided, make sure your soil is ready for the plants by checking that it has good drainage and removing any weeds that might compete with the perennials for water and nutrients.
The best time for planting perennials would be in springtime. Once planted perennials basically look after themselves. They need very little attention and thrive with minimum care, giving you a garden filled with colour and beauty.
