Summertime Gardening

Maymont’s horticulture staff tends the Italian Garden 2-3 times a week. The staff removes spent flower blossoms to encourage the roses, annual bedding plants and perennials to continue flowering. Applying fertilizer by following the instructions on each label will encourage continuous bloom as well. During dry periods it is important to water, preferably in the morning, but thankfully this year that is not an issue here in central Virginia. With a bit of care your garden will be filled with flowers all summer long.
