As we continue to add to the flower farm, perennials are a priority for us. I am excited to highlight some of the perennials that we rely on through the summer season.
Perennials get planted with mycorrhizal fungus and watered consistently until they are established. Typically, we plant perennials in the fall or spring. I fertilize perennials with a weekly foliar spray of fish fertilizer in the spring and mulch the bed well to prevent weeds. Even with mulch, the perennial beds can get wild. However, they consistently give us beautiful flowers and foliage each year with very little work.
