Spring Perennials Make Your Landscape Beautiful During Spring
Though you could plant some perennial plants in your garden in the Fall, still, springtime is the best time to make your landscape more beautiful. In the Lake St. Louis, MO region, all of the conditions which perennials respond and relish to are in place. These things include the warming soil, longer days, warm sunshine, humid ground, as well as the regular rainfall. The roots are questing in the ground, absorbing the nutrients and water to fuel the plant’s growth.
If you prefer to plant in the Spring, there are some important things that you should take into account. Here are some tips to follow so you can handle properly all your perennials:
* First of all, you should never handle your plants roughly.
* Do not plunk a root-bound plant in the ground. You may choose to tease apart the plants’ roots a bit or you can lightly score both sides using a pointed knife to promote the development of new roots. After that, you can place the perennials in their planting hole.
* You should never plant your spring perennials in the waterlogged ground. Also, you must not drench them after planting. A moderate amount of water is needed to be drenched to your plants after planting them but too much water can prevent the oxygen from getting to the roots of your plants and they will be rot or literally drown.
This should get you started! Part 2 of our Spring Perennials Guide for the Lake St. Louis region will be up in a couple of days, so please check back.
