Plant Talk

Uncategorized

Now that your plants and flowers are in the ground.
There’s one last thing you can do to add curb appeal while adding protection in this week’s Plant Talk.

KEVIN: I’m finishing up a bed that I started last fall. It’s a nice little perennial garden. We had a great rain last night so luckily I had some of those plants planted, and I’m gonna get the mulch on.

I like to use some of the shredded mulches.
This is a western red-cedar.
They stand up a lot better in the wind, as far as drifting away.
So take a look at that soil moisture in that soil, it’s gonna make it so much easier for the transplant shock on these.

You’ll also notice I like to use a lot of field stone within my beds. I actually just incorporate that mulch right in the crevices here. The other thing I really emphasize to customers that we have is always introduce some contouring into your landscape beds where you get some peaks and valleys. It just adds so much more interest.

A lot of people also use poly, or the fabric under their mulch or rock beds I choose not to. I just make sure I stay on top of my weed control.

We’ll finish this bed up a little bit later. I wanted to show you a little winter injury on one of my shrubs.

Each spring we recommend patience for a lot of the shrubs. A week ago, I thought this thing was a goner. Once we get it clipped back, it’s gonna come back and be a beautiful shrub this year. As always, thank you for watching Plant Talk. We’ll see you again next week.
