A Gardener's Secret
We're going to share a little secret with you.....
People always have specific requirements for the plants they purchase. But the number on requirement is probably that they be low maintenance.
Perennials are the secret to low maintenance gardens. They beautify our living spaces and give us flowers year after year with minimal care. There are lots of other benefits too! Perennials can provide food and shelter for all kinds of wildlife large and small. They often have deeper root systems and require less watering and fertilizing once established. They help build up the soil. Planted densely, they can act as a cover to keep out weeds and hold in moisture. Most perennials bloom at different times of the year. That means with a little planning, you can have an ever changing garden of flowers from spring to fall.
