THE BORDINE’S FARM
The Bordine’s Farm in Grand Blanc has seen incredible growth over
the last decade. The 100 acre site is where we grow the majority of
our high quality plants. Retail is open April - October. A few Bordine's
Farm facts you may not have known...
• There’s more than 1 million square feet of greenhouse
growing space!
• Our greenhouses are highly specialized, allowing the grower to
control the smallest of details to optimize growth. The advanced
technology includes humidity controls, computer controlled
supplemental lighting, reverse osmosis water purification and
automatic fertilizer injectors.
• We propagate more than 15 million seedlings a year.
• We grow about 95% of our own annuals and perennials.
• A little over 15 acres is used for outdoor growing.
• We grow 60% of our own trees and shrubs.
• We employ about 275 people at the peak of our season.
BORDINE’S GREEN INITIATIVES
Bordine's has been taking green initiatives for decades. For example,
google “Darrell Bordine patent” and you will see that in 1977 our
founder applied for a patent for his water recycling greenhouse bench.
This patent was granted in 1978. Some of the original concrete
benches this system used are still in the Rochester Hills Greenhouse.
With that kind of thinking it is no wonder that Bordine's is Michigan's
best place to buy plants... and the best, just got better.
2008 marked the greatest environmental change in our company's
history. The installation of a biomass boiler at our Grand Blanc
growing facility will decrease our heating system's reliance on fossil
fuels by over 60%! Since then we have added a 200,000 gallon hot
water silo that holds hot water to increase the efficiency of our heating
system and a 10 million gallon pond to collect runoff water for reuse.
OTHER GREEN INITIATIVES
Flood Floor Range
• Helps conserve water and fertilizer
• 110,000 ft. of plants
• 100% water recycling
• Four 10,000 gallon cisterns hold the water that is filtered and reused
• Computerized fertilizer injector only adds fertilizer after water has been
tested. The result is always a 100% use of fertilizer with zero waste.
Heat Retention Curtains
• An energy curtain saves an average of 35% in heating costs every year
• By providing shade, they reduce the need for exhaust fans thus lowering
electricity costs
Automated Watering Booms to
Conserve Water
• With the ability to be programmed for
specific plant needs, they only water
or fertilize specific plants that require
the inputs, skipping over plants that
don’t. Also, the water is delivered to
the plants just inches above them,
resulting in less water being lost to
evaporation.
10 Million Gallon Retention Pond
• Recycles water
• The majority of our growing facility is engineered to capture rain water
in the pond.
• Water is pumped from the pond to grow our trees, shrubs, roses and
small fruits.
• All of the runoff from the growing areas drains back to the pond to be
reused again.
Reusable Plug Trays
• After the investment of a sterlizing machine and reusuable trays, our
plastic use has been greatly reduced. Some of the plug trays are used
3 times a year!
plant care information
SOIL PREPARATION
WATERING
If your conditions are not ideal, you’ll want to take the extra steps to
make your soil nice and loose over as large of an area as possible.
The addition of Sphagnum Peat will help both sandy and clay soils.
In sandy soils, it will hold more water and in clay soils, there will be
less compaction and your soil will be easier to use.
We recommend that you check your plant's soil conditions before
automatically watering. (Over-watering symptoms look very similar
to Under-watering symptoms).
All types of plants will grow better when given the proper soil
conditions.
Spread 2 to 3 inches of Sphagnum Peat over the planting area
and thoroughly dig in or rototill to a minimum depth of at least 6 to 8
inches. Rake the soil level and remove any large clumps.
When planting Rhododendrons, Azaleas and other Broadleaf
Evergreens, remember to use these products to keep your plants
healthy and vigorous.
• Sphagnum Peat
• Mulching Material
• Pine Bark Mulch (as a soil amendment)
Watering frequency can vary with plant types and weather
conditions. In general, water more often during warm, windy
weather and less often when it’s cool or rainy.
To check and see if your plant needs watering:
Push aside any mulch around the root zone of the plant. Reach
down into the soil (directly around the root ball) the depth of your
fingers and remove a sample (handful). Squeeze the soil in your
hand. IF the soil feels too moist and clumps together or is dripping
water when squeezed, THEN there is too much water already in
the soil and additional watering could only cause potential
problems. At this point it is better to let the soil dry out before
watering again (Don’t forget to check back in a couple of days).
IF, however, the soil feels dry and crumbly, THEN it is time to
water this plant again. Keeping your plants at an even moist soil
condition can be a challenge at first. Not too wet. Not too dry.
However, once you have done this a few times you will begin to
identify which plant species and soil types require particular
watering practices.
• Root ‘n’ Grow Root Stimulator
• Holly-tone
Remember, it is always better to “get a little dirty” and
periodically check your plant’s individual watering needs,
than it is to assume and just set an automatic watering
schedule!
SOIL CONDITION
Good Soil
In well drained or loose soils, dig
the hole twice the width of the
rootball and as deep, or slightly
shallower. (NEVER deeper
than the rootball!)
Apply water
directly to the
root area with
a hose or
watering can.
Poor Soil
In poorly drained soil or hard,
compacted soils, dig the hole
three times the width of the
rootball and 75% as deep.
Sprinklers or
overhead watering
may not provide
enough moisture/
water… as leaves
shed the water
outside of
the root area.

perennials
Perennials are plants that grow and flower for three years or
more. Most perennials are considered ‘herbaceous’: they die
back to the ground each fall, but the roots remain alive to
produce new foliage in the spring. A wide range of sizes, forms,
colors and bloom times are available to suit your needs. With
careful planning, a perennial garden can provide color from
early spring to late fall. Most perennials are low maintenance.
They require little more than basic care which includes
PLANNING
YOUR GARDEN
Planning Your Garden: It is important
that you choose appropriate plants for
the site. Is the garden in a sunny area
or does it get a lot of shade? What type
of soil do you have? A soil test will give
you specific information about your soil.
Get to know which plants will tolerate
your conditions or add amendments
(sphagnum peat and composted
manure) and whatever else is
recommended to help improve the
condition of your soil. Choose plants you
wish to include in your garden so that
you will have color throughout the
growing season. Adding bulbs to your
plan will give early spring color before
your perennials are in full bloom. Many
perennials also have very attractive
foliage which adds interest to your
garden when their bloom time is over.
fertilizing, mulching and a general overall grooming from time
to time.
Everything you need to plan, prepare and plant a lovely
perennial garden is available for you here at Bordine’s!
More detailed information can be found on our Care
Sheets, available in store or on-line at bordines.com
PLANTING
Planting: Water the plant thoroughly
before removing it from the container.
Dig the planting hole as deep and twice
as wide as the container from which the
plant has been removed. Check the root
ball. If the roots are matted, loosen the
soil and roots so that the plant grows
into the surrounding soil more easily.
The plant should then be set at the
same depth as it was planted in the
container. Once the plant is set
securely in the ground and the roots
are well covered, water thoroughly with
Root ‘n’ Grow Root Stimulator per
package instructions. Water regularly
until your plants are established. Some
perennials such as Daylily, Iris or Peony
require a precise planting depth. Placing
these too deeply may result in fewer
blooms. Also, pay close attention to
the recommended spacing. Plants like
Hosta can grow quite large compared
to its size at the time of purchase.
DEADHEADING &
CLEANING UP
Deadheading: This means to remove the
faded flowers. Deadheading encourages
the plant to produce more flowers and
therefore lengthens the bloom time. Also, it
improves the appearance of the plant and
the garden in general. Remove the flower
stem as far below the leaves as possible
without cutting off buds that may bloom
in the future. Some plants with attractive
seed pods or fronds like Rudbeckia,
Sedum or Grasses can be left alone.
They add interest to your garden during
the winter months.
Cleaning Up: When the season comes to
a close and frost has ended the growth of
your plants, it’s time to clean up. Most of
your perennials can be cut back at this time
to about 4-6" from the ground. Exceptions
would be those that add winter interest to
the garden such as Sedum, Coneflower
and Grasses. It is a good idea to compost
the cuttings from your garden. Separate
any diseased debris first before adding to
your compost pile.

Clinging Vines climb textured surfaces such as brick, stone or rough wood.
Twining Vines climb by wrapping around a trellis, lattice, fence or open, grid-like structure.
Pruning helps control the size of the vine as well as encourage flowering.
If the vine blooms in early spring such as Akebia and Wisteria, prune as necessary shortly after flowering.
If the vine blooms in late spring such as Honeysuckle and Trumpet Vine, prune in early spring or late fall as
necessary to thin and shape.
Wisteria do not always flower reliably, try the following steps to encourage flowering:
 Full sun location (8 or more hours of direct sunlight)
 Low Nitrogen Fertilizer
 Superphosphate (0-20-0) fertilizer in early Spring
 Prune Shoots back 1/3 to 1/2 of their length in July
 Root prune in late fall (18" deep and 4' from base of plant)

Lilies are one of the
easiest perennials to grow!
They grow from a bulb
which multiplies over the
years, giving you more and
more plants! The stalks
are robust and require little
staking. Their flowers are
stunning in the garden and
many have a wonderful
fragrance as well. It is best
to remove faded flowers so
that seed pods do not
form. This allows the plant
to achieve maximum bulb
development for the
following season.

Daylilies are low
maintenance perennials
that thrive in the sun. Their
flowers come in a range of
colors from pink to purple,
yellow, red or bicolor.
Different flower forms such
as double or ruffled are
what make each variety
unique. While many
varieties only bloom for 2-4
weeks, most newer
varieties bloom 8-12
weeks continuously when
deadheaded. They look
fantastic when planted in
masses, on slopes for
erosion control or in the
perennial border.
Butterflies and
hummingbirds absolutely
love Daylilies and they
make great cut flowers.

Perennial Grasses are an extremely diverse
group of plants offering many colors, textures
and forms suited to a wide range of growing
conditions. Most Perennial Grasses prefer full
sun (8 or more hours of direct sunlight), but
many grow well in partial shade (4-8 hours of
direct sunlight). Grasses with variegated
leaves are more tolerant of shade conditions
than Grasses with green foliage. The addition
of composted manure and sphagnum peat will
insure a healthy planting. These products
help nurture the plant, hold moisture and
aerate the soil. Perennial Grasses should be
trimmed to a height of around 4" in April. You
may cut them back in the fall but they tend to
overwinter better if left standing until spring.
Many Grasses hold their shape through the
winter months adding interesting contrast,
color and sound to the winter garden.

ASTILBE, Bridal Veil
Excellent cut flower! Astilbe
provides intense flower color for the
shade! Their foliage is quite
attractive as well; dark, rich green
and sometimes with a red hue! Be
sure to plant Astilbe where they will
receive morning sun and shade in
the afternoon. Astilbe also does well
in moist conditions. If the foliage
ever dries out and becomes crispy,
don’t worry! Simply cut the plant
back and water it. The foliage will be
healthy and lush again in no time!

Our Hollyhocks are biennial,
which means the original plant
will die after it flowers but the
seeds produced will grow into
new plants. For this reason,
Hollyhocks tend to spread out
and multiply.

Huge, dinner-plate size flowers!
Remember: In Spring, cut back
any remaining stems before new
growth appears. Hibiscus don’t
start growing until late May or
beginning of June. They require a
little bit of patience, but will not
disappoint you in late summer
when their glorious blooms take
your breath away!

Use these gorgeous flowers in
spring cut flower arrangements!
Not only the flowers, but also the
blue-green sword shaped foliage,
is eye-catching in the garden.
When planting the rhizomes,
remember to plant them just
deep enough that the tops are
exposed to the sun.

Peonies are one of the most beloved
plants in the garden! Their huge,
showy blooms are often fragrant and
always stunning; making excellent cut
flowers! The sturdy shrub-like stems
make a handsome, dark green
background for your garden
throughout the season. Don't worry
about the ants, they are merely
attracted to the sweet sap on the
flower buds. They will not harm your
plant nor will they pollinate it, like
many people think. Itoh, or
Intersectional, Peonies are a cross
between an Herbaceous and Tree
Peony. They have large flowers and
strong stems but die back to ground
level every year. Tree Peonies have
gorgeous flowers that make a huge
statement in the garden! They do not
die back to the ground in winter as
other Peonies do and therefore do
not need to be cut back.

TREE PRUNING
Trees are best shaped while young, as the branches are smaller
and pruning at this time leaves smaller wounds that heal quicker,
minimizing the chances for disease or insect damage of the wound.
Once established, they need minimum care to maintain their beauty.
It is important to develop a good branching habit in a young tree.
Prune to develop one central leader and branches that have wide
angles where they join the trunk. The closer the lateral branches are
to 90º, the stronger the attachment at the branch. Narrow angled
branches tend to break in storms.
For most trees, pruning should be completed before growth begins
in spring. Some species, such as Maple & Birch, tend to bleed sap
from their pruning wounds. This will not harm the tree, but is
unsightly. To prevent bleeding of sap, prune these trees in late
spring to early summer. Remember that wounds made after July
do not heal well for the remainder of that season.
Oak trees should only be pruned from November to March. This
is a protection against the spread of Oak Wilt. The insects that
spread Oak Wilt are attracted to the sap of these trees, so pruning
when dormant helps to stop the spread of this disease.
For more information, visit our website at www.bordines.com and
click on Care Sheets – Pruning Care Sheet.
MULCHING
Decorative mulches add the finishing touch to any landscape by
providing a consistent and colorful covering over the soil. Do not use
mulches around annuals as mulch can inhibit their performance.
Mulching materials are available in a wide variety of colors and
textures to compliment your plants and surroundings.
Mulches provide a protective covering over the soil. This helps to
moderate seasonal temperature extremes and reduce water loss
due to evaporation. Other benefits include less soil compaction and
erosion, reduced weed growth and the addition of valuable organic
matter back to the soil as the mulch breaks down. All of these help
to create a better environment for roots to grow which leads to
healthier, more vigorous and beautiful plants in your landscape.
For more information, visit our website at www.bordines.com and
click on Care Sheets – Mulching Care Sheet.
HYDRANGEAS
Hydrangeas provide outstanding garden interest with large, colorful
flowers during July and August. Many varieties hold their maturing
blossoms even into the fall. These garden favorites also add color
and texture to the garden with their luxurious and sometimes rather
bold foliage for much of the growing season.
Will Flowers be Blue or Pink? – Certain varieties of BIGLEAF and
SERRATA Hydrangeas have the unique ability to change flower
colors depending upon the acidity or alkalinity (expressed as pH) of
the soil. Even subtle pH changes can cause plants to produce blue
flowers one year, lilac colored the next and pink the year after.
As a general rule, blue/pink varieties will produce the
following color results at these various pH levels:
pH between 5.5 and 6.0.........................very blue
pH between 6.0 and 6.5.........................blue
pH between 6.5 and 7.0.........................pink
pH between 7.0 and 7.5.........................very pink
Our Garden Stores have simple pH test kits available to determine
the pH of your soil, as well as the various soil acidifying materials
including Garden Sulfur and Aluminum Sulfate.
Flower Reliability – The ability to produce flowers each year varies
among the different Hydrangea types. Those varieties that flower on
current year’s growth will dependably flower each year, regardless
of planting location. Varieties that bloom on old, or last year’s growth
are at the mercy of winter cold and spring frosts which can damage
stems and flower buds.
Pruning Hydrangeas – With Hydrangeas, NO pruning is better
than incorrect pruning. In fact, most varieties will grow and flower
to some degree if they are never pruned at all.
Here are some simple pruning guidelines to follow...
1. Annabelle & Peegee Types – No pruning is really
necessary except to remove spent flowers, broken or
entangled branches and for general shaping. The best time
to prune is in early spring before growth begins.
2. Oakleaf Types – Delay spring pruning until growth has
fully emerged. At this time, remove any winter damaged tips
or stems that have not produced leaves. Heavy pruning
should occur immediately after flowering, while removal of an
occasional branch or two for shaping purposes can be done
any time during the growing season.
3. Bigleaf & Serrata Types – Delay spring pruning until
growth has fully emerged. At this time, remove any winter
damaged tips or stems that have not produced leaves.
Flower buds form near the stem tips during the previous
year and may be accidentally removed if pruned back too
far. Additional selective pruning may be done in late summer
to remove just the spent blossoms if desired.

An Eastern exposure is the preferred placement for this group of plants. Most Broadleaf Evergreens enjoy morning sun for
their foliage and flowering vigor, but prefer to keep cool in the afternoon shade. Just as important is the protection found here
during the winter months when strong winds and sunlight can severely damage the leaves and buds.
Established acid-loving plants, such as Azaleas and Rhododendrons, as
well as evergreens, should be fed twice yearly, spring and late fall. Sprinkle
Holly-tone around the base of your plants as directed on the bag. If the area
to be fed is mulched, it is preferable to remove the mulch, feed and then
restore the mulch on top of the application of plant food.

Pruning Evergreens
Reasons for Pruning - In general, most evergreens need minimal pruning. It is important to choose the correct size
evergreen for its location when planning a landscape, as it is nearly impossible to correct an overgrown evergreen by
pruning. Damage can occur to branches from wind, ice, disease and insect problems. These dead or damaged branches will
need to be removed to prevent more damage from occurring. This type of pruning should be done as soon as the need
arises, since waiting could allow disease to spread to healthy wood.
Spruces can be trimmed while young to produce a fuller tree by trimming the new growth by 1/3 to 1/2. This should be done
after the new growth has hardened off in July. More severe pruning can be done by cutting back into last year's growth, just
be sure to make the cut above a side branch or bud.
Pines can be made fuller by trimming new growth back by 1/3 to 1/2, however, do not trim into last year's growth, as they do
not possess the dormant buds that the Firs and Spruce do and will not replace the branches removed.
Arborvitae and Junipers can also be kept more compact by cutting back new growth. These plants tend to have a 'dead
zone', or interior area where there is no foliage, so cutting back too far exposes the dead zone, and is very unsightly. Severe
pruning should be done in early spring so the new growth will fill in the exposed areas.
Yews can be trimmed to maintain a formal shape if desired. Their new growth can be trimmed as needed in mid-June. Yews
can also have a second light pruning in late September. Do not over prune late in the year.

BUTTERFLY BUSH, Adonis Blue
BUTTONBUSH, Sugar Shack
CHOKEBERRY, Black, Autumn Magic
Butterfly Bush will attract an amazing array of butterflies &
hummingbirds to your garden. They begin blooming in early
July and will continue until frost if spent flowers are removed &
plants are watered & fertilized during the season. Although the
plants have woody stems, they behave more like a perennial.
Plants will die-back to near ground level after cold winters so
prune plants down to 12" in early spring.

Water Gardens Plant Selections
There is a wide range of plant varieties with beautiful flowers and foliage which cannot be grown in any other environment. Water plants
grow in a range of different depths in the pond; some grow completely submerged and others keep just their roots below the waters
surface. Water plants must be set at their appropriate depth if they are to grow well. The following is a brief description of the major
groups of water plants.
FLOATING PLANTS
Floating plants take their nutrients directly from the water and simply float on the surface adding shade and variety to the water garden.
Many floating plants are fast to spread and are easy to control in a small water garden. Floaters purify the water by taking up waste
nutrients which helps reduce the growth of unwanted algae.
MARGINAL PLANTS
The majority of marginal plants grow in shallow water at the edges of the water garden. Marginals provide lush, upright foliage that
softens the edge of the water garden.
WATER LILIES AND LILY-LIKE PLANTS
Water lilies and lily-like plants have ornamental leaves and flowers which dominate the central area of the water garden. There are
annual and perennial (hardy) water lily varieties.
OXYGENATING PLANTS
Oxygenating plants grow completely submerged under water. The most valuable aspects of oxygenators is their ability to use up waste
nutrients; this keeps the water pure by starving unwanted algae.
