Questions & Answers

What are good companion plants?

I am trying to plant more perennials in my garden. I have areas of full sun, large rocks, low soil depth, sandy poor soil, shade, and partial sun/shade. I just started gardening about 3 years ago. I am tryimg to make a beautiful garden that contains less annuals due to the amount of time needed to keep the flowers nice. Currently, it takes too much time to care for my flowers. I enjoy gardening very much but would like a gatden with perennials that flower throughout the summer and some annuals. Any advice woyld be appreciated on what type of perennials and annuals I should plant and where. Below are pictures of my current garden.

How do you divide asters?

How do you divide asters?
Asked by: SKT
Hello, Asters can be divided in the Spring of every other year. Summer is not a good time to divide and dividing them in Fall won't allow for the plant to become established before winter sets in.

My aster plants are large but no flowers?

Asked by: Pat2
Hello, thank you for your question. Asters often fail to bloom when the soil is too moist or too dry. They also prefer full sun, the more shaded the site, the less blooms produced. Divide every 2-3 years to maintain vigor and flower quality.
