It's August-- still a month and more of growing to enjoy. We thank our Mentors who told us to enjoy every day of summer, and to keep cutting back annuals and repeat blooming perennials.
Janet admired some hanging baskets while shopping for quick-fix color and complemented the growers, who replied, "Glad you like 'em. Cutting them back hard has a lot to do with that."
Louise Lannoye, below, stands with fellow cutters Sarah Drumm on the left and Sharon Dickson on the right. Sarah holds Janet's petunias, while Sharon holds another of the same age that's been cut back. They all say, "This one you're buying is ready to be cut again. We know people have a hard time cutting them hard when they look so pretty but at least take a few long stems out of it."
