Planting Guides

Planting and Caring for Pre-Planned Gardens & Collections

Soil Preparation: Remember that proper soil preparation is the key to healthy, vigorous blooming perennials. Use Yum Yum Mix and a high quality compost at recommended rates to prepare the soil. Inoculate the plant roots with Plant Success mycorrhizal inoculant. Planting: Plant according to the mature size of the plant. Don’t be tempted to put the plants too close based on their size in the pots. They’ll grow quickly and cover the space shown in the planting map. (Maps included only with Pre-Planned Gardens, not Collections.)

Fertilizing: Once annually in mid-fall, after plants begin to go dormant. Use Yum Yum Mix or Yum Yum Mix Winterizer at recommended rates to improve the soil and provide essential plant nutrients.Use it with high quality compost, mix half and half by volume and spread on top of the soil. Scratch it in lightly and water thoroughly. It is also beneficial to treat the plant roots with Plant Success® mycorrhizal root inoculant if you didn’t do so at planting time. (Inoculation only needs to be done once.)

Mulching: In arid climates mulching is very beneficial. Coarse textured composts, shredded leaves, pine needles and composted bark are all excellent mulch materials. Apply to a depth of 1-2 inches. Replenish annually (or as needed).

    Comments about High Country Gardens Jumbo Waterwise Pre-Planned Garden For The West Coast:

    I wanted to be able to give this pre-planned garden a five-star rating - because the majority of the plants grew wonderfully! The Ava's, in particular, have been a great addition - attracting hummingbirds that we didn't even realize lived in the area. :) Unfortunately, not one of the three Zagreb Coreopsis plants survived. We will have to replace them with something else next year. If you are interested in this garden, I would suggest buying the others listed individually and cutting the Zagreb Coreopsis.

      I read really nice reviews before I bought this garden. I don't know where those reviews went. I have enjoyed these plants this summer. I've made sure to water them regularly to get them established. The deer did visit, but only ate the rose that was already there. My neighbors all like the garden as well. I look forward to seeing how it fares next spring. According to the prior reviews, it should be stronger and bigger. I can't wait!

      Easy to follow instructions. One third of the plants eaten by deer after a couple days. I then netted them for protection. Next Spring a third of the remaiing plants did not come up. The final third are growing but the deer eat them so they are still very small.

      Q & A

      USDA Hardiness Planting Zones

      To determine if a plant is sufficiently cold hardy, the USDA created numbered zones indicating winter low temperatures; the lower the zone number the colder the winter.

      • If the coldest winter temperature expected in your area is -15°F (zone 5) then any plants rated zones 3-5 will survive the winter temperatures in your area.
      • If you live in very warm winter areas (zones 9-11) plants with zones 3-4 ratings are not recommended. The lack of freezing winter temperatures do not provide a time for winter dormancy (rest).
