1.   Some of the perennials varieties grow better than others: the carefully chosen ones. It is quite possible that you  planted some years ago in a special choice bed by your window, and they have disappeared.

2·   An expert gardening scientist explained the one-third rule of perennials. Of new ones planted, after one year, one-third will die, one-third will live and one-third you won’t like.

3·   Weeds grow better than perennials. So does ivy, myrtle, grass, poison ivy, etc.

4·   Something always needs clipping, deadheading, cutting back, pulling out. Hence the need to always carry a paper bag and garden shears when you walk through the garden.
