What Plants are Best for Wet Soil?

If you have wet soil throughout your garden, it can be tough to know what plants can actually survive those conditions. Although wet soil appears to be better than dry soil, it can be every bit as challenging when selecting what can grow and thrive in that excessive moisture.

Here are a few suggestions for different plants to consider when you plan out your garden during the springtime.

White Cedar

Cedars love wet soil and they can thrive in it. Any areas that have excessive moisture or even swamp areas are great for cedars since they love those moist, nutrient-packed soils. It’s also one of the reasons why cedar is such a favourable wood to use since it’s resistant to water and bugs.

River Birch

River Birch trees are beautiful. They are similar to paper birch trees but have an almost pinkish hue to the bark that peels off in a stunning display, along with delicate small leaves as the foliage. They have a shallow root system so they are actually quite sensitive to the heat, and dry soils. Thus, they are perfect for placing in cool, moist soils.

Honey Baby Honeysuckle

This shrub is tolerant in most soil conditions and is winter hardy. It is a bush so it doesn’t grow high but it’s perfect for gardens or even planters, especially if you’re looking for something that smells great.

Elderberry

Elderberry is a shrub that is most commonly found in Southern Ontario and throughout North America. Many people love them for their berries, which can be used in a variety of ways, including in wines and pies. They are also hardy and love wet soil.

Cinnamon Ferns

Ferns are always a great addition to the garden. And the cinnamon fern prefer medium to wet soils that nutrient rich, with partial to full shade. So any of those darken, swampy spots are just the spot for these.

Siberian Iris

These are a popular plant for the long-lasting blooms and low maintenance that comes with them. They bloom small purple petals and have bright green stems that really brighten up any garden. They require lots of water, especially during the first year until they are well established.

The Best Native Plants for Ottawa Gardens

The Best Native Plants for Ottawa Gardens

Native plants are always an important addition to any garden. They are stronger, and usually much more resilient to various conditions regarding soil, climate, and even water consumption. Plus, they are less prone to infestations from insects.
It’s important to always incorporate some native species into your garden and softscaping. Here are a few plant species that are native to Eastern Ontario that can make a beautiful addition to your garden.

Chokeberry

These deciduous shrubs are generally found in damp soils since they tend to be more sensitive to dry soils. They are common shrubs that can be found scattered wildly, but are great for the garden as many people cultivate them for ornamental purposes, as well as for food and wine.

Staghorn Sumac

These shrubs are exceptionally strong and hardy, and for this reason can be found growing along roadsides, clearings and along the edge of forests. They grow well in most soil conditions and can even tolerate poor, dry soil. They are also resilient against pests and disease. They grow into tree-like sections with unique, twisting branches and foliage that turns into a bright red display during the autumn.

Hawthorn

Hawthorns are shrub-like trees that can grow up to 15 metres tall, similar to the sumac. But these are commonly used and trimmed as a hedge plant. These shrubs grow berries and usually have thorns throughout the stems. They are also a favourite for many pollinators and can grow in most soil conditions. And when placed in the sun, they produce beautiful scented flowers.

Bitternut Hickory

This is a strong and very sturdy tree with bark that is often used for making tool handles as well as sports equipment. It prefers conditions of low, moist and nutrient-rich soil. They also produce brown inedible nuts and have darker foliage with dainty pointed leaves.

Balsam Fir

These are one of the most common trees that you will find throughout Ontario and one that many people can easily recognize. They grow tall and narrow with short, firm needles and sticky sap. And they are of course, a favourite for Christmas trees since they have that beautiful great narrow shape and give off that wonderful fresh scent.

Native species are always best to plant throughout your garden. They are much stronger and resilient against fluctuations of climate and soil conditions. When it comes time to plan out your garden in Ottawa, stick to some of these great native plants.

Preparing Your Perennials for Winter

If you’re interested in preparing your perennials for winter, you’ll appreciate this practical guide. We’ve compiled some of the best tips, all of which are easy to understand and simple to follow.

Now, let’s take a look at the smartest, most sensible ways to prep these types of flowers for the winter, with a mind to enjoying beautiful blossoms when the long winter in Ottawa is finally over:

Dig Up Perennial Bulbs

Once the first frost happens, it will be time to trim back foliage, dig up perennial bulbs and store these fragile bulbs somewhere warmer. In particular, bulbs that are known to be delicate should be dug up and stored – gladiolus and dahlia bulbs are examples.

If you don’t dig up these bulbs before winter really sets in, the bulbs may be destroyed. Such bulbs aren’t designed to survive the very low temperatures that we see in the winters here in Ottawa.

Water and Trim Back Perennials

This advice only applies for hardy perennials or if it’s a particularly mild winter: you’ll benefit from watering your perennials monthly. This watering schedule will ensure that your perennials stay robust and healthy during this difficult part of the year. If your perennials are done for the season, trim their stems so that they measure six to eight inches (15-20 cm).

Nourish Your Perennials

Composting will be a great way to nourish perennials during the colder months. Some people spread four to six-inch layers of compost in flower beds during autumn. If you didn’t do this in the fall, do it now in order to give your perennials access to nutrients and in order to ensure that your soil is of the best quality possible.

Do Some Mulching

Once the earth freezes, get rid of older mulch and add evergreen boughs and hay instead. Some people put in floating row covers – this is another option. When you add this type of layer, your delicate perennials will be insulated.

Hopefully, our straightforward guide will help you to plan correctly and to get everything done. It won’t take too much time to prep perennials for winter – however, it’s really important to follow every step on the list.
