Garden Tips!

From our Landscape Director, George Chapman

Garden Tip 134:


We have talked in the past about garden editing– removing anything that doesn’t add to the picture. Editing becomes all the more important in the late summer/fall season when plants are winding down and change is ever more constant.

Check out your garden daily with a critical eye and remove those plants that are truly done for the season– that broken and brown leaf clematis, the mildew phlox, hosta that have more holes than Swiss cheese, and the zinnias with a single flower and no foliage, they all can go!

We can still have great looking gardens for another five or six weeks with a bit of garden editing. Asters, mums, sedums, heliopsis, anemones and more are coming on strong. Let’s clear the stage for their fall performance!
