FAQ

Frequently Asked Questions

What are perennials and annuals?
Perennials and annuals are two types of plants that bring vibrant colors, unique textures, and lush foliage to any garden. Perennials are plants that return year after year, while annuals have only one growing season. Annuals can be replanted every year, while perennials may need replanting occasionally as they age or die out due to environmental conditions or disease. However, you can keep these plants looking their best in your garden with the right care!
When should I plant perennials?
When it comes to planting perennials, timing is everything. Generally speaking, spring perennials—such as peonies, poppies, and tulips—should be planted in early spring, while fall perennials—such as asters and chrysanthemums—are best planted in late summer or early fall.
How often should I water perennials?
One of the most important components of a successful garden is adequate watering. Depending on the size of your garden and seasonal weather patterns, you may need to adjust your watering routine. During particularly hot summers, for example, it’s a good idea to water perennials every day or even twice a day—once in the morning after the dew has evaporated and then again in the evening before nightfall.
What's the best fertilizer for perennials?
There are a few considerations when deciding which fertilizer to use. For instance, many gardeners choose slow-release organic fertilizers as they provide a steady stream of nutrients and don’t require frequent reapplication. To learn more about which fertilizer is best for your garden, contact our team for tips and advice.
Should you deadhead perennials?
Yes. Regular pruning and deadheading are important steps in caring for your perennial plants. Pruning should be done regularly to shape the plant and encourage bushier growth. Deadheading, or removing spent blooms, has an aesthetic benefit and helps keep your plants healthy by ensuring that nutrients are used to create living tissue rather than dead flowers or seed heads.
