As our farm grows on the four-legged and two-legged side of things I am noticing some perennial plant neglect. So, I do need to do some rearranging so that the mixed borders get easier to care for not more difficult. Therein lays the mission of the Perennial Plant Association’s “Plant of the Year” program.
