A common question from those beginner gardeners, “Do perennials grow back each year?”
Yes, they do. Perennials can be an important part of the foundation of your beds and borders. Because they are important to your plantings, the key to using perennials in the garden is planning.
First, why is it important to plan your perennial garden?
With different blooming times, you will want to plan your garden to enjoy flowers and foliage throughout the season. It requires some research but the results are a beautiful garden.
