Gardeners are advised to divide perennials when the plants are dormant, just before a before the ground freezes. Perennials include flowering plants, herbs, bulbs, grasses and some woody plants, such as shrubs and trees. “There’s no reason not to have a garden from the first crocuses to the first frost,” DiAmicis says. Greater Sudbury is on the border of Zone 3 and Zone 4, but DiAmicis says don’t be discouraged by labels that suggest a certain plant won’t grow here. If you like it, try it and see what happens, she advises. “You will be amazed at what will grow here.” She hasn’t had much luck with overwintering roses, but every spring she buys two bushes. “I’m happy for five months, they don’t overwinter but that’s OK,” because they only cost a few dollars. She does recommend people read the tags on plants regard- ing sun conditions, watering requirements, flowering time, and how tall and wide the plants will grow. “It is important (when planting) to leave room for them to expand,” she says. Some of DiAmicis’ favourite perennials are irises, foxglove, delphiniums, daylilies and sedums. While some people cut down their plants in the late fall, DiAmicis doesn’t, and has had good results with the natural insulation this provides. Books on perennials available at the Greater Sudbury Library include: ■ Favorite Perennials by Majorie Harris ■ Perennials in Your Garden by Trevor J. Cole ■ Canadian Garden Perennials by Arthur R. Buckley ■ Lois Hole’s Perennial Favorites by Lois Hole ■ It is possible to check the library’s catalogue and reserve books from home at www.sudbury.library.on.ca.
