I love perennials. Plant 'em and forget 'em!!
That was my thinking when I planted them all in my huge bed.
HOWEVER, I found out I DO still have to pull weeds!
And dig out grasses that run over into the bed.
Or put down new mulch (or pine straw) along the way.
So I've started clearing & cleaning the bed for the Fall.
Still have the area behind the swing to do....
And along the walkway out to the garden gate.....
