I have a 50 Foot Perennial Garden bordering my backyard. I love the flowers all summer long. I put a lot of work into my garden. I even double dig when necessary. In the last few years I've lost a lot of my perennials so now only about six species dominate the garden. I'd like to maintain a better color balance. Will proper fertilization help? If it will what should I use?

The plants that are predominating in your perennial garden are most likely effected by the amount of sunlight they receive. Some perennials need more sun light than others. The fertilizer you use is important because you want to grow flowers and not just leaves. Avoid high nitrogen fertilizers. I recommend Natural Beauty Fertilizer because it contains complex natural food sources that release slowly and will not promote rapid leaf growth.
