Advice from our specialist

There are many types of perennials with very different growing medium needs. Those that are slow growing, grow from rhizomes or have small fibrous root systems, such as Agastache, Aquilegia, Gypsophila, Iris, Lavender, etc., prefer a growing medium with a lower water retention capacity like PRO-MIX® HP or BRK. Fast-growing perennials, such as Echinacea, Hosta, Leucanthemum, Mums, etc., prefer a growing medium with a higher water retention capacity, such as PRO-MIX® BX. Group plants with similar watering requirements to minimize watering headaches, and remember to apply fertilizer throughout the crop cycle to ensure the best crop quality.
