Brighten up your landscape.
With beautiful low maintenance Perennials from DJ Nursery.
WHAT IS A PERENNIAL?
Flowering perennials are herbaceous plants that die back to the ground every fall and flush back out each spring. They are technically defined as plants that live three years or longer. Perennials, once grandmother's favorites, have taken a permanent place in gardens of today.
With improvements and new varieties available, perennials can provide a whole season of color that returns and increases year after year.
Come see what we have for you.
CARE & MAINTENANCE
Mulching your perennial bed will help maintain adequate water levels and will help to control weeds. Because deep cultivation may injure roots of desirable plants, hand weeding or carefully using an herbicide is recommended.
Perennials need adequate fertilization. Use a well-balanced fertilizer in the spring and once or twice more during the growing season.
Some perennials are top heavy and require staking. Most of the time the plants grow full enough to hide the support. If you use ties of any type, make sure they do not girdle the plant stem.
Dead-heading (the removal of dead flowers) during the growing season will maintain vigorous growth and promote additional flowering. Remove dead foliage and stems in the fall to make room for new growth in the spring.
