Variegated Solomon's Seal
MINNEAPOLIS - Even though this wet, cold spring has been very difficult to plant and get in your garden, the flowers, veggies and perennials look GREAT at you garden center!
The next week's forecast looks promising and that is music to the ears of many gardeners.
Bobby reminds us that when the warmer temperatures get here the pots and gardens are saturated so even if the top of the planters dry out don't think you need to water them quickly.
He says to let the roots find the water and support the growth as they do by not watering them.
If you did put in any liquid fertilizer it probably is all leached out of the soil so adding more is a good idea. If you have time-release fertilizer than it will kick in once the temperatures warm up so no need to reapply or if you used organics they are still good.
Perennial Plant of the Year this year is the Variegated Solomon's Seal and it is a beautiful shade loving woodland plant that has beautiful leaves, white flowers and is fragrant.
A great addition in the back of your shady perennial beds.
