Perennials: many of us rely on them to sprout up during the first few days of spring, before plants go on sale for Mother’s Day and we all rush the stores to plan our gardens. But if you mulched your beds in the winter time, you’ll be hard pressed to see flowers in bloom, even if they are supposed to come back on their own. Though occasionally perennials might force their way through mulch, it can pose a risk to the health of the plants.

When the ground begins to thaw out at the end of winter, remove the mulch to give room for your perennials to breathe and break through the dirt. After the plants start to sprout and take off, you can then reapply or lay new mulch in order to quash the growth of unwanted weeds and give your garden that freshly made-up look.
