PREPARING PERENNIAL
BEDS

  1. Spade deeply . . . 12 to 15 inches.
    If some plants are growing in the bed, remove them
    and “heel” them into a small trench.
  2. Add humus and drainage ma-terial …
    Stir or break up sub-soil if possible. Perennials
    do not like “wet feet.” Put drainage material (small
    rock and gravel) in the bottom of bed. Apply 1 pound
    of fertilzer to each 25 square feet of bed area. Work
    plant food into the soil. Turn the hose on the soil
    bed to hasten settling. After a few days it will be
    ready for transplanting.
