Additional Information

Perovskia should be hard pruned to a few inches tall, just as they are beginning to produce leaves ? this is usually but not always undertaken in mid-April. Once you have pruned Perovskia, you may wish to apply a generous layer of mulch consisting of well rotted garden compost around the base of the shrub to retain moisture and suppress weeds. Hardy perennial.

"Thank you ladies for your beautiful plants.
Praise also, for the Bulrush Compost, of which I have purchased 8 bags during the past six months. It is superb and my garden has flourished.
Bless you,
Kind wishes"
