The unseasonably cold and icy weather we’re experiencing here in Ontario is certainly not making it easy to think about planning our garden! Normally, April showers do in fact bring May flowers and with it, warmer weather and softer soil to plant and transplant our gardens. A challenge for any gardener, whether seasoned or brand new, is planning a garden to show off a succession of blooms right from early spring through to late fall.
In today’s post, Sunflower Gardens will reveal our top plant picks for keeping your perennial garden in blooming colour for the entire growing season. Keep in mind, that these plants would be suited to normal conditions for a zone 4 plot with moderate rainfall, good loamy soil and at least 6 hours of sunshine per day.
Have fun with this handy list the next time you go to the garden centre! Happy shopping and planting!
