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 Butterfly Paradise Pre-Planned Cottage Garden:

    I removed my parkway lawn several years ago and purchased this pre-planned garden as well as the Jumbo Waterwise Pre-Planned Garden to replace the grass. My garden is well irrigated with drip lines, but many plants have not survived and have been replaced with other varieties purchased from local nurseries. I found that several plants were susceptible to black spot and powdery mildew including the Coreopsis Zagreb, Rudbeckia fulgida Goldsturm, and Echinacea 'Pow Wow White'. I have attempted to treat the problem with Neem oil, but it requires nearly weekly treatment to keep the mildew away. In the end, i removed the blighted plants and replaced with less susceptible varieties from local stores. After blooming The 'Pow Wow White' turns a dull ivory yellow, which looks unattractive unless cut. The Red Valerian is prolific but also spreads. I find myself weeding dozens of seedlings in the spring, and it has spread to my neighbors gardens now. Overall, i had high hopes for this garden, but three years later i have a 50% survival rate. It's not worth the money when larger, and heartier plants can be purchased locally.

        This is my first preplanned garden purchase and it did not disappoint. Easy to follow planting guide, healthy plants, and no guesswork. I've ordered several more and look forward to planting them this fall.

          Q & A

          Suggested Companion Plants:

          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).
