Let’s face it – unless you are a serious master gardener, your primary garden aspiration is to have a beautiful well-maintained garden all season long that does not require too much work! However, even very low maintenance landscaping designs benefit from some level of attention. And, that attention will undoubtedly reward your efforts with a blooming, colorful perennial garden throughout the entire growing season.
Provide consistent water supply – Although your plants may have different moisture requirements, some being able to tolerate short periods of dry weather better than others, prolonged times of drought can put a significant strain on your plants and flowers, forcing them to cut flower production in order to stay alive. So supplying your landscape with regular water can keep your southeastern Pennsylvania perennial plants and flowers performing cheerfully for you throughout the summer.
Fertilize regularly – Some plants and flowers, particularly annuals and roses, are so floriferous that they really benefit from a quality “multi-vitamin” to boost their energy and keep the blooms coming.
Deadhead periodically – Removing spent blossoms serves a dual purpose – it not only tidies up your plants, thereby improving the appearance of your entire garden, but it also encourages them to produce more flowers.
There are many plant care best practices and tips to follow, but how do you know which are most important for southeastern Pennsylvania perennial plants and flowers? GardenGuides.com says, “Perennials native to Pennsylvania have adapted to the climate and perform well in cultivation, displaying their showy
