In the early years of my gardening career, I planted many perennials without a clue as to how to take care of them. It gradually dawned on me that I needed to learn something about tending these beautiful flowering plants. Sometimes it was not such a gradual learning but more of an emergency! Too-rich or too-moist soil, heavy winds or rains, letting the plant grow past the size when it should be divided — all can contribute to a messy, flat clump of ruined flowers.
