Annual Flower Beds

 

Nothing makes the landscape shine during the winter like a bed of healthy, colorful pansies. Unfortunately, sometimes the healthy and colorful part can be tricky. After consulting with my horticulture advisors and testing some products, I have come up with the ultimate combination of soil amendments to get the healthiest plants with constant robust blooms.

Here is the “secret” formula:

1. Build the bed with one part top soil, one part Sustane organic fertilizer, and mulch with a fine pine bark soil conditioner. Because the Sustane is made of composted turkey manure, it provides rich organic nutrients through the season. The soil conditioner gives the bed a fluffy consistency to allow easy root growth.

2. Sprinkle over 2 cups per 100 sq ft of granular fungicide and insecticide and lightly work into the bed. This allows the plants to absorb these pesticides systemically and will last through the season. It will prevent aphids from feeding on pansies and winter fungus from blotching the leaves.

3. Start with healthy robust plants with established root systems. We get the bigger pots from Roundtree Nursery and stay away from the small 6-pack containers.

4. Spray pansies with Macron ornamental fertilizer and deer repellent. This additional fertilizer treatment is key to getting maximum blooms from your pansies. We will spray Macron on the pansies twice the first month, then every other month for the rest of the season.

5. Deadheading through the season to promote more blooms.

This is what we deliver when we install your pansy beds this fall. Only the best products and cutting edge techniques to get great results.

Please give me a call if you would like to create a new pansy bed in your landscape or decorate with pots.
