Tips for growing perennials

1. Group plants by flowering season. Don't mix spring and summer flowering perennials together.

2. Arrange the colour combinations you like, but be sure to use contrasting foliage and height to avoid 'mounding monotony'.

3. Trim off spent flowers to prolong the flowering season.
