Guide to Perennials – How to Grow Perennial Plants

For a gardener, there is nothing quite like the feeling of wandering around your garden, in the spring, and seeing the first growth of perennials that you have planted years before.  These plants die back in the winter but send out new growth each spring.   Growing Perennials gives me color and beauty all through the spring and summer months.This guide for growing perennials gives tips and trips for plant types and how to grow, propagate and display them.This guide to perennials is a great source for helping you to identify which plants are the most hardy, which flower the most profusely, and also which do well in the sunshine or shade.

There are lots of ideas for dividing perennials (the main source of propagation) and also tips for growing these plants in containers on a patio if you don’t have a lot of garden space outside.  I will add to this guide several times each month, so be sure to check back often to see which plants and which tips have been added recently.
