  3. Q.   How should the soil be prepared for a bed of perennials?
  4. A.    Perennials will remain in the same spot for a few years before being divided. Therefore soil amendments will prove beneficial. Place several inches of organic matter over the bed and then spade it in. Organic matter can be leaves, compost, peat moss or manure to name a few.
