When to Plant Perennials and Annuals!

Annual and Perennial Garden Flowers in Troy, Birmingham, Royal Oak, Bloomfield, and Rochester MIThinking about planting Annual and Perennial flowers this year? Middle to late Spring is the most opportune time to plant perennials and annuals in your garden. By planting them in mid to late Spring, you ensure that any late night frosts do not effect root growth, or plant health. You also ensure that the heat waves of summer do not effect the plant early in it’s growing cycle. Summer planting can also be very successful if proper watering is observed during the planting process.

Watering is crucial to newly planted annuals and perennials. Water the plants immediately, right after planting. Water a minimum of once a week for the first two weeks to keep plant roots moist and improve root vigor.

Garden PLants - Royal Oak, Birmingham, Troy, Bloomfield, Rochester Hills MIPerennial and Annual maintenance is fairly easy. Be sure to remove dead flowers as soon as possible to encourage new growth during spring and summer, prune off any dead tops in late winter, and apply insecticide as needed to control any pests as soon as noticed to help avoid spreading them to other plants.

Keep Your Shrubs Looking Beautiful All Season Long!

Shrub trimming should be done twice per season on average after the first round of growth in June/July and late in the season when the shrub is done growing for the season usually around September or October.

Shrub trimming has a number of positive effects for the shrubs 1) by removing dead leaves and branches you make room for new growth. 2) You are able to maintain the desired height and width, or shape if you so desire,  by staying on a regular maintenance schedule with your bushes. This also helps to keep shrubs/trees from growing into the side or roof of your home/garage before it’s too late. With the recent storms we have experienced many homes were damaged unnecessarily by dead limbs.

Lawn Mowing

Lawn Mowing

Lawn mowing sounds extremely straightforward. However, lawn connoisseur knows the proper procedure of lawn mowing. Biggest miscue homeowners make cutting grass too short. Evenness of the cut provides lawn, a good look. Grass grows faster after it has been trimmed to regain its genetic form.

Second most issue is when to stop mowing. Lawn mowers maintain, never to remove more than one-third of blade length. Mowing means pruning. Severe cutbacks are more stressful for grass and require extra energy to heal. When grass grows faster in mid-spring, mowing is required twice a week.

You should not leave enormous piles of clippings of grass after mowing. This will mat down the leaving grass blades, which will discolor the grass and provoke diseases. Clippings in small piles need to be raked up. It is preferable if you compost it or use as mulch over garden beds.

Finally, many homeowners take the same route while mowing. This is because of convenience, habit or nosy neighbor. No horticultural problem will arise with that, but altering the route provides cosmetic difference.

Lawn mowing tips include mow high and often with sharp blades. Soon, you will become a master of mowing.
