Perry's Perennial Pages

Flower and Gardening Articles 

New * Winter * Spring * Summer * Fall * Anytime

The following articles include those on perennials, flowers, and many other gardening topics.  New articles (5) are added monthly, and are arranged below by season. Articles appropriate any season are arranged further by topics.  Author names are listed for contact purposes, as some of the articles have been adapted from other sources. In the following search feature, ads that may appear are from Google, and are not endorsed or related to this site.

Articles are provided for educational purposes and may be reprinted unaltered without prior permission, provided credit is given to the authors and "University of Vermont Extension" as the source.  Notice of their use and publication, however, would be appreciated and can be sent to leonard.perry@uvm.edu.  You are advised to check here also to make sure the information in the article is still current and accurate. The most recent articles are listed nearest the top of each category heading.

Articles are listed below by season appropriate to Vermont and similar regions in USDA hardiness zone 4 (don't know your zone? check the Links page for zone finders, or hardiness zone finder on the home garden page). For each hardiness zone warmer add a couple weeks in fall, and subtract a couple weeks in spring for approximate dates. In other words, activities for late September in zone 4 might be done 4 weeks later in zone 6, and activities for early May in zone 4 might be done 4 weeks sooner in zone 6. Time of season, such as early or late, are indicated next to article names where appropriate.
