Create an colorful garden around your mailbox. Visitors will appreciate being welcomed with colorful blooms. This sunny perennial mailbox garden has easy to grow bulbs and perennials that will return for many years. They bloom starting in early summer and continue through the late months of summer. 
 
This sunny mailbox garden is designed for a 3' diameter circle shaped planting area. Specific directions on how and where to plant can be viewed in the planting advice tab.

Sunny Perennial Mailbox Garden Includes

  • 8 Mixed Asiatic Lilies
  • 6 Butterfly Weed
  • 6 Birch Double Cransebill


Planting Instructions

  1. Map out and dig out the planting area. This garden is designed for a circle shape around the mailbox that is 3' in diameter. This means that the planting bed will be 3' across from one side to the other. Remove any grass in the planting area so the bulbs and perennials can be planted in bare soil.
  2. Remove the Mixed Asiatic Lilies from their package. Place the 8 bulbs around the post of the mailbox. The bulbs should be 3-6" from the post of the mailbox. Space each bulb 6-9" from each other. The lily bulbs should be placed in a circular pattern around the post.
  3. Remove the Butterfly Weed roots from the package. Place each root approximately 12" from the lily bulbs in a staggered pattern. They should be 12" from each other forming a triangle shape. The butterfly weed will be in the middle of the planting bed on each side of the mailbox.
  4. Remove the Birch Double Cransebill roots from the package. Place each root approximately 12" from the butterfly weed, in a staggered pattern. The cranesbill will be planted in front of and in between each butterfly weed. They will be in the front of the planting bed on each side of the mailbox.
  5. Now that the roots have been placed where they will be planted, it's time to plant. Start planting from the outside working your way to the inside of the circle.

How to Plant the Sunny Mailbox Garden

  1. Plant the Birch Double Cranesbill at a depth of 1-2". Dig into the soil and spread the roots out. The crown of the plant which is where all the roots come together should be at the soil surface level or slightly above the soil level. Once the roots are in the ground cover them up with the soil you removed from the planting area.
  2. The Butterfly Weed root will be long and skinny, looking somewhat like a small carrot. Dig the planting hole deep enough so the root can fit. The crown of the root should be at or above the soil surface. Once the roots are in the ground cover them up with the soil you removed from the planting area.
  3. Plant the Mixed Asiatic Lilies 6-8" deep. Dig a hole for each bulb and place the bottom of the bulb 6-8" deep into the soil. The pointed end of the bulb should be facing up. Once the bulb is in the planting hole cover each bulb up with the soil that was removed from the planting area.
  4. Water the entire planting area to help settle any air pockets in the soil.
  5. Apply a 2-3" thick layer of natural mulch, such as hardwood mulch or hemlock to the planting area. Mulch helps to regulate the soil temperatures, control moisture, and keep weed growth down.
