Each week, we sit down with Andy Hanna of Hanna’s Garden Center to talk about Central Alabama gardening. Here is this week’s Q&A.
Q. What are most people planting right now?
A. Ground covers and most evergreen trees or shrubs do fairly well throughout the year. Conifers tend to do better in cooler weather. A lot of folks are sprucing up their Spring annuals and perennials now, but will likely need to replace those with Fall annuals (such as snapdragons, cabbage, kale and pansies) before the cold weather arrives.
Q. Can you recommend any trees or shrubs for planting now?
A. Yes. Junipers, ground covers, and other drought resistant plants (such as salvia and rosemary) usually do well. But remember, plants are only really drought resistant once they are established. So, if you plant trees and shrubs now, be sure to water them regularly and properly through the Summer.
Come for the healthy plants.
Come back for the expertise.
