How to Plant a Perennial Garden

Perennials are a low maintenance choice for landscape borders. Plant them once and they come back year after year. Here are 6 easy steps for growing a perennial garden. First choose a large open location, that will provide full sun, partial sun, and full shade. Next remember to sketch a plan for your garden. Third, choose plants that have varying heights to add excitement to your garden like ornamental grasses. The fourth step is to dig the bed and amend the soil with a rich compost. Rake the soil out smoothly. Next, place the plants, giving them plenty of space to grow. Plant them as deep as the pot, not any deeper. Remember that perennials grow year after year so they will need room to grow. Finally, mulch your perennials, to conserve moisture, suppress weeds, and unify the look of your garden.
