Perennials

Perennials

In the simplest terms, a perennial is a plant that lives for at least 3 or more years.  We usually use this term to describe herbaceous perennials when talking about gardens.  Trees and shrubs last for many years too of course, but these are woody plants.  The life span of a perennial varies quite a bit, depending on climate, soil conditions, insects or diseases and the particular plant in question. We know the Winnipeg Manitoba market well and provide the plants that work best in our climate.
