Perennials are popping up all over. Many varieties are coming back strong.
Apply slow release fertilizer now and patiently wait for some of the slower perennials like hostas and other shade lovers to pop up soon.
Our clematis are beautiful! Full of buds and ready to burst. We have applied bone meal to beef up their root systems as well as fresh pine straw. Tim and I like to encourage them to grow up attached to fishing line. One of our favorite varieties is the white Henryii. Find a place for one of these in your garden.
We’ll cut back our Formosa azaleas after they are done blooming and prune out lanky old woody stems. We fertilize with Holly Tone.
The daffodils have been done blooming, but we allow the green leaves to remain on the bulbs as long as possible to supply nutrients for next year growth. Now is a good time to divide spring flowering bulbs and apply bone meal.
