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).


Growing Pulsatilla (Pasque Flower): Plant Pulsatilla plants in well-drained, alkaline soil with full to part sun. In moister areas, Pulsatilla can be planted on sloping beds, hillsides and raised beds to ensure their roots aren't waterlogged in winter. Pulsatilla prefer colder zones (4-8) and aren't a good choice for the southern U.S. Young seedlings can be transplanted; established plants have deep tap roots and should be left in place. Pulsatilla is an ideal companion plant for many early spring blooming bulbs such as crocus, wildflower tulips, and miniature daffodils. Learn more about Growing Pulsatilla (Pasque Flower)
