There are so many perennial plants sold on the market, & they really vary as to size, exposure required, season of bloom, flower color, & so on. But, the one thing they all have in common is the need for a good start in life. That’s why this video is all about how to successfully plant perennials.

You can plant perennials any time of year that the soil is workable. I’m planting in spring because the selection is newly stocked up & the temperatures aren’t too blasted hot yet here in Tucson. Late summer/fall (with enough time to grow in before the 1st frost) is also a great time to plant because the days are warm & the evenings are starting to cool a bit.

Planting in spring or fall makes it easier for the plants to settle in. Summer is fine but just know that the plants will have to be watered more and settling in may take a bit longer.

Now sit back, watch your perennials grow & thrive & pat yourself on the back!

    Rabbits have been the single greatest obstacle to my having a successful perennial garden. Rabbits in my area have even gorged themselves on plants that rabbits are not supposed to like, echinacea and rubeckias.

    I live next to a Roman Canal in the UK. Next doors our digging footings and hit water about 3 foot door. It`s clay soil but no wonder my pear tree grows big fruit every year.

    Hi Nell. Really enjoy your channel. Tucson is such a beautiful area–especially the Catalinas. Your digging made me think of ‘cocci’ or Valley Fever. Is that discussed much in your community?

    Hello, I’m seeking some advice regarding perennials. I only have 3 flowers that come out, could it be lack of water although my sprinkler is set for 45 minutes 3 times a week. What am I doing or not doing?

  14. Anna Ramos on January 2, 2022 at 2:22 pm

    is this the same type of soil that you plant succulents in when you plant them in-ground? my soil here in Florida is a lot more sandy and the water goes thru it really quickly. is that OK or do i need to amend the dirt prior to planting? i already planted everything! they seem to be doing fine, though…

    Your soil looks great. In Alabama we live in clay. So informative.
