Preparing Perennial Beds

Perennials planted in poorly prepared soil may last only one year. A good perennial site has excellent drainage and protection from drying winds. Perennial bed preparation should begin the year before the bed is to be planted. Check the drainage and make improvements if needed by adding organic matter. Deep soil preparation is important for perennials because the plants will be in place for many years.
