Synopsis: Giving perennials, bushes and trees one or two heavy waterings during winter, on warmer days, prevents root damage
As storms lashed the East and West coasts this past autumn, many other parts of the nation experienced extended dry weather. Lack of moisture in the soil and surrounding atmosphere for months at a time can damage plant roots not receiving supplemental irrigation.
In areas where winter temperatures dip below freezing, you should only water on days when temperatures are above 32 degrees F. Colorado State University notes that one or two winter waterings are sufficient to protect plants from damage. Remember that the majority of Salvias need good drainage year round, but particularly in winter when their waterlogged roots don’t survive hard freezes.

Plants looked very good at very reasonable prices.
The plants came promptly and were in beautiful shape, nice and strong for planting. They look great.
Very happy with purchase.
I have ordered several times from Flowers By The Sea and would highly recommend them if you would like to receive well grown plants of excellent quality. The plants are always a good size, not puny sticks like many nurseries send. Despite my orders being shipped across country, they arrive in great shape due to being packed with care. I am so happy I found Flowers By The Sea.

Have been ordering plants for 3 years and have never received an improperly packaged plant or had a plant die. Love their instructions and information about each plant. Have had to call on two occasions and talked to a real person who answered my questions. Love their website.
