- Clay: You’ll have poor drainage with clay soil. Its tiny particles bind together when wet and keep water from draining properly. Plants in clay get too much water and not enough air to thrive, and their roots have trouble penetrating the soil. Organic amendments will improve clay soils.
- Sandy: Sandy soils consist of larger particles, which create a more porous mix and allow water to drain through too quickly. Plants rooted in it have difficulty absorbing water. Organic amendments will also help this soil type.
- Loam: Loam is the combination of both small and large particles, which is ideal for plant growth. This soil will hold water long enough for the plant to absorb while safely draining away the excess.
- Shrubs can repeat bloom – Select perennials and shrubs can repeat bloom for you by cutting them back. Some of these varieties include asters, early mums, coreopsis, salvias, buddleia and some roses.
- Shrub Planting – When Planting trees or shrubs, dig a hole twice the width of the plant’s root ball. By digging a hole twice the size, you are loosening the surrounding soil for the new roots to grow into. We also recommend amending the soil with peat moss for retaining moisture and a fertilizer to stimulate root growth.
- Shrub & Tree Care – The watering of new trees or shrubs should be maintained for the entire first season ! The first watering soak the plants in, then maintain a moist not wet soil. Mulching around the plant also aids in retaining moisture.
