Bloom Me Longer, Please!

Hello again, --

A good home must be made, not bought.
Joyce Maynard, "Domestic Affairs"

In todays tip I thought you might like to find a few ideas about the perennials. I know there are some great suggestions in the book "The Weekend Gardener"- The Busy Persons' Guide To A Beautiful Backyard Garden but---

you may have asked youself: "Are there perennials that bloom for longer than just three or four weeks a year"?

One trick is to plant a sequence of different plants that bloom at different intervals. This gives you a constantly moving flow of different specialities that bloom like a symphony of change and variety.

But there are some perennials that are especially good at longer blooming:

bee balms ( Monarda didyma)
yarrows (Achillea millefolium)
coreopsis (C. grandiflora)
hollyhock mallow (Malva alcea)
and many lilies too including 'Stella D' Ora', 'Happy Returns', and 'Pardon Me'.

The most time saving thing to do is to choose these not only because they bloom longer but because they add to your other perennial choices. Take notes and throw away any choice that doesn't quite measure up to your expectations.

This is a fun study, when you approach your gardening with a small notebook to keep track of the changes you discover!

And take lots of photographs, too!

Each year you become less tied down and free up your weekends for more pleasure as you experiment. The notes are important---just like these special tips and tricks you're getting!

Until tommorow-
