If you want to max­i­mize veg­etable pro­duc­tion and bloom pro­duc­tion, don’t un­der­es­ti­mate the win­ter plants’ need for wa­ter and nu­tri­ents. Pre­pare the plant­ing area with 2 inches of com­post and 10 cups of win­ter­izer or slow-re­lease lawn fer­til­izer and refer­til­ize every three to four weeks. Ir­ri­gate if the soil dries to 1 inch. If your lawn is not a tight sod be­cause of shade and shal­low soil, and the weeds such as horse herb and res­cue grass move in, con­sider mow­ing them every two weeks. The re­sul­tant “lawn” will be at­trac­tive and sus­tain­able.

Con­sider plant­ing blue­bon­net trans­plants in con­tain­ers or the raised bed as an at­trac­tive part of the land­scape. They also stim­u­late ad­mi­ra­tion and dis­cus­sion from your vis­i­tors.
