Centerpoint classic gardening landscapes offers some good advice on controlling pests in a perennial garden. Because the plants stay in the ground all year, pest control is very important. If you see the symptoms of pest infestation, you must act quickly so the insects donít take over your garden. There are chemicals you can use for pest control, but most gardeners prefer to try natural means first. Some plants are bred to be pest resistant. Others, such as marigolds, will attract insects that eat pests such as aphids.

Do you live in a hot, dry climate? Centerpoint classic gardening landscape gives advice on the best annuals for your garden.

Do you love roses? Centerpoint classic gardening landscape tells you how to get the best results when you plant new roses. First, choose a sunny location for your garden. Use a few inches of an organic mulch and add a rich organic compost. The bushes should be eighteen to twenty-four inches apart. The hole you plant the bushes in should be deep enough for the roots to spread unrestricted. Itís a good idea to add some bone meal to the soil. Place the bushes in the holes gently, and fill the holes with loose soil. Pack the loose soil firmly with your hand. Water each plant well everyday for the first two weeks. After that, watering once a week should be sufficient.

If you are going to grow roses, you will need the right tools. Roses have thorns, so wear leather work gloves with fold-down cuffs. Use bypass pruners so you donít crush your plantsí stems and canes. If your garden is a few years old, you will need loppers to cut back old, thick canes that are too tough for pruning shears. You will also need kneeling pads, a short digging fork, a watering wand, a long handled shovel with a padded handle, a good, strong wheelbarrow, a garden rake and a leaf rake.
