General tips for planting and caring for perennials:
- Planting: Dig a hole slightly wider than the original pot, but no deeper than the original. Spread and loosen the roots and place in the ground. Fill in with soil, pressing firmly around the roots, and water well.
- Be sure to water perennials well after planting them.
- Taller perennials may need to be supported until the roots develop a firm hold in the soil.
- Cutting off faded flowers (deadheading) will not only make your plants look better, it will help yield more blooms and a healthier plant.
- Depending on how rich your soil is, you may need to feed your plants occasionally. Typically, a general-purpose garden fertilizer will do the trick. Be sure to follow directions on the fertilizer and be careful not to overfertilize your plants.
- Some perennials may need a small layer of mulch to prepare for winter and ensure they will come back the following season.
- Coneflowers not look great, but do great in Indiana. This is a low-maintenance option is great for filling in the gaps between other plants and adding layers of height to your garden.
- Before choosing your perennials, be sure to think about where you are planting and whether it is spot for sun or shade.
- Before planting, make sure you are aware of how tall each perennial will grow and plant accordingly.
- When planting, be sure to leave room above ground level if you plan to add mulch around your perennial.
