|January's cold, snowy days are a great time to plan your perennial garden.
Get out your catalogs (they have arrived, haven't they?) and make a list of
your favorites, then sketch your garden out on graph paper. |
A couple of tips:
- Look at the bloom times and plan to have something in bloom throughout spring, summer and fall.
- For visual appeal, plan for plants that grow to a height of no more than twice the width of your bed. Taller plants will look out of proportion.
