There should be a minimum soil depths of 30 cm for perennials, 45 cm for shrubs and 60 cm for trees. </li><li>Every spring, apply 5 cm of well-rotted compost or manure annually in the spring (try not to pile it up around woody stems).</li><li>Remove weeds as required, and inspect for pests and disease every week or two in the spring and summer. </li><li>Ensure plants receive a minimum of 5 cm of water weekly during the spring and summer. </li><li>Remove and compost ‘spent’ blooms and leaves in the fall. </li><li>Prune only to remove misplaced or damaged stems as needed during the summer. The plants suggested here should not require pruning to reduce size. </li></ul> </div>
