|Six Tips for the Best Perennial Border
Is your perennial border looking a little tired? Is the weeding getting out of control? Do your plants need to be deadheaded, shaped and pruned? But, not hacked into some artificial shape (like a ball or a square...yuck!). Knowing how to plant, what plants to choose, and how to care for the garden and landscape does not have to be that difficult. Your garden can be full of color and seasonal interest. Items to consider:
Go beyond the flower to the second or lower node to promote continued growth throughout the season.
2) Weeds: For cleaner looking planting beds, apply weed control 3 times throughout the season to reduce/eliminate those pesky weeds. Cultivate regularly to kill off germinating weed seeds.
3) Extending Color and Seasonal Interest: Incorporate colorful plantings that bloom at different times throughout the season.
4) Long Lasting Perennials:
Plant long blooming perennials such as Rudbeckia (Black-Eyed Susan), Nepeta and Perovskia (Russian Sage).
5) Low Maintenance Solutions: Choose new hybrid plants that are disease resistant and less susceptible to insects.
6) Add Structure: Add evergreen and deciduous plantings in the perennial border and throughout the garden to create form.
