Perennial Planting Guide

Echinacea With so many styles, sizes and colors, perennial plants can make an ordinary garden into an extraordinary one. Best of all, they'll return year after year to spread their good cheer. Now that all perennials are 20% OFF, it's a perfect time to start or expand your perennial garden.

Follow these instructions to get your perennials off to a great start:
  1. Choose the right number of plants for the area to be planted. This information can usually be found on the back of the plant tag, in our online catalog or by asking one of our knowledgeable staff members for help.

  2. Pull back any bark mulch. Since most perennials enjoy a richer soil, Estabrook's recommends that a well balanced organic fertilizer and the addition of a 2-4" layer of compost, composted cow manure or other soil amendment is incorporated into the soil to a depth of 14-18" every time perennials are added to new areas or existing plantings. Level off the planting area after working in the soil amendment.

  3. Make sure your plants are well watered, then dig a hole wider but not deeper than the root ball. Remove the plant from it's pot and if necessary, loosen its roots by gently fingering the bottom of the root ball or by scoring the sides of the root ball with a garden knife.

  4. Insert your plant into the hole and backfill with soil while firming down well and making sure the plant remains level with the sides of the hole. We recommend the addition of a 1" "dam" of soil built 6-8" from the crown of the plant to form a "dish" that helps retain water.

  5. Mulch the planting with a 3-4" layer of bark mulch or 1-2" layer of buckwheat hull mulch and water thoroughly.

  6. Check for dryness daily for the first two weeks and water when needed until established. All plants appreciate extra water in periods of drought.
