Watering garden after planting

-The next step is to water the newly planted tree and shrubs. The soil should stay moist and the water should be applied every day for several weeks, depending on the time of year. You should also carefully check the ground around the tree to see that no dirt was disturbed when you planted it. This will prevent fungal disease and/or diseases from spreading to surrounding plants. The healthy soil is important for your tree.

-As you water, it's a good idea to fertilize the area around the tree with a lawn fertilizer. Doing so will promote better growth of the tree and help prevent diseases. You can plant an annual in-season fertilizing mix at this time, or switch to a "grow only" fertilizer when planting the tree out. The fertilizer can be purchased at a local garden center.

-If you used a container to grow your tree, you can bury it in the pot to protect it from drying out during hot summer months. Mulch is also a good way to keep the area around the tree dry.


-You will be cutting your perennials during the first growing season, so they can regrow for the next season. Perennials should be cut at soil level, which will leave enough growing space for them to continue to grow. If you cut the stems at soil level, you won't kill the plant, which will cause it to lose its growing potential. If you pull the plants, they will usually grow new shoots and create another stem.

-If you want to replant a perennial that has died back in the fall, give it a little attention now to help the process along. Clean the plant by pulling off any debris and disturbing any roots. You may want to work the soil underneath the plant so that any buildup of fungus or insects can be removed. A fresh compost application of three parts compost, one part peat moss and one part vermiculite will help remove any disease causing fungus or insects from the plant. You can plant the plant directly after mixing it up, or leave it in a container for a few weeks and water until the plant is well established before planting.

-It's best to avoid fertilizing perennials after you pull them from the ground. This is because they have been dormant for several years, and their root systems may not have developed very far. By fertilizing after planting, you will encourage new growth which will cause a number of problems including poor-quality growth and you won't be able to control the plant's height and the amount of foliage it produces.

If you're growing your perennials in a container, you can fill the pot with either water and soil mix, or a high-quality soil such as Miracle-Gro. You'll have to let the soil mixture drain completely so that the plant will not have any saturated areas. It's important that the container be drained thoroughly and not have pockets of standing water on the bottom. It's best to wait a couple of weeks after planting the container before you water, to let the plant establish itself.

Other Tips

-When you harvest your perennials, you may want to pull up the plants with their root ball or "root crown" intact. This will keep the root system intact. If you must pull up the plants, be careful to leave the crown or root ball in place so that it will get enough air.

-Plant perennial beds out of the direct sunlight. This will help promote leafy growth and they won't get burnt.

-Consider using native plants and planting species that will attract beneficial insects and birds.

-Do not use large quantities of herbicides on your garden and, if you do use them, make sure you water thoroughly afterwards so that any remaining traces of the herbicide are washed away. The herbicides should be used sparingly and it's best not to use them at all, if possible.

-If you don't want to add new plants to your garden every year, consider removing some of the plants you have now and planting more perennials. It's easier to plant new perennials than it is to remove old plants and remove the plant materials from your lawn.

-Remember that flowers aren't the only reason to plant perennials. They can also be used to attract insects that pollinate your trees and vegetables. By planting insects that help promote plant growth and fruit set, you can have the best of both worlds. They can also help you to cut down on the number of insects you need to spray for control of pests.
