In the Fall, I put down more compost. This summer was the first time I planted flowers in the second field so the field needed some more improvement.
My soil tests came back with a pH of 6.8 which is great for flowers. I still need to keep adding organic matter to the soil. Compost helps a lot but I am going to try to use buckwheat as a cover crop when possible in the summer.
Silage tarps help with weed suppression and erosion.
I have yarrow, snap dragons, and queen’s anne lace planted in the field which are all cool flowers. I put mulch on top of my tuberose plants to protect them from freezing temperatures.
