Even though the days are longer, it's still winter in the Northern Hemisphere. January and February are often difficult months for many people. We can feel tired of winter and a little depressed even. So, in the last article, I focused on stress relief and actions we can take to alleviate stress like taking supplements, yoga and meditation. Well, there is another way to relieve depressive symptoms and stress too and that is the act of gardening.
There is more to gardening than meets the eye. Digging in the dirt can increase feelings of wellbeing. Yes, it's true! There are microbes that increase serotonin which in turn increase joy - this isn't some woo out there claim. It's a scientific fact. Over ten years ago scientists started to document this relationship between beings and the soil of the earth.
Gardening also helps us to get our bodies moving too. In the end, we get to enjoy the reward of gorgeous blooms throughout the seasons. That is why the perennial bloom succession series was created. Perennials are the plants that come back each year.
Generally, the succession of blooms is for a variety of zones but warmer and ultracold climates may have some modifications to the list. Based on four changing seasons (zones 3-7) this list should help to guide you to plant perennials that will bloom from mid-spring and later spring too. People who live in colder or warmer climates can share their tips and tricks in the comments here or on the website. Let's all #learntogether
