Perennial Gardening Month

June is Perennial Gardening Month. Perennials are plants that persist for many growing seasons adding color, contrast, and interest to the garden. They generally have to be cut back each winter, returning to grow and flower again the following year. You can create long lasting combinations by planting in groups or masses. Have intense sun or deep shade? No problem, we have a wide variety of perennials for every location. There are so many appropriate and exciting choices. Plant and enjoy.

Many perennial flowers are attractive to bees, butterflies, and hummingbirds. Summer provides the perfect environment to produce lots of nectar rich flowers to feed our winged friends. For more information on attracting butterflies to your garden, visit our Monthly Tip & Contest Page. While you’re there you can also enter to win a $25 Plant Kingdom Gift Card.

Just for You!

Summer is officially here and as usual we won’t let the hot, humid weather slow us down at The Plant Kingdom. Annuals, perennials, trees, shrubs, and houseplants will continue to arrive throughout the summer.

*During the summer months availability of plants becomes somewhat limited as growers have sold out of their spring stock and are waiting to release their fall availability. This year’s summer availability will be ever more limited due to the increased demand our industry has been experiencing over this last year. In 2020, as people were confined to their homes due to the pandemic, the demand for ornamental trees and shrubs, houseplants, and gardening supplies increased dramatically; therefore, nurseries and hardgood vendors have not been able to keep up with demand and we are experiencing shortages in all of the product lines we carry - plants, mulch, pots, tools, etc. Because of this we would recommend that if you see a plant or an item you like, buy it! It may not be available tomorrow. It could also be beneficial to be flexible if a particular variety of plant you’re looking for isn’t available and be willing to accept substitutions. We are doing our very best to keep The Plant Kingdom fully stocked with all of your favorite items, but we ask for your patience as we continue to make our way through this challenging season.

The Summer Planting Season

Summer is still an excellent time to plant, keeping in mind one big question – will you be able to water? While we may physically be uncomfortable due to the heat, the plants don’t care. We are very conscious of our climate and will provide you with the best advice and selections for our northern winters and southern summers. For advice on how to keep your newly planted landscape happy and healthy all summer long, visit our Learn Page.
