Secrets to Success

  • Well prepared soil with exceptional drainage.
  • Start with good plants from a reputable source: your own seed started plants or from a reputable nursery.
  • Close planting. The plants shade out weeds that might navigate the mulch.
  • Faithful watering. Deep watering a few times a week, spot watering of the wilters.
  • Fertilizing on a schedule if the soil is not well amended.
  • Regular grooming to remove unattractive leaves or other ugly parts.
  • Absence of predators: Enough ‘good bugs’ to override the ‘bad bugs.’
  • The right microclimate, or, right plant, right place.
