He also recommended hostas for those with kids, due to the fact they’re super robust and can handle being trampled by small feet.
Brandon said: “If you want our gardens to look fuller and you want to do it cheap, these are the perennial plants you want to get and why.
“Number one is hostas.
“Hostas are super robust, they’ll grow almost anywhere, and every year you can just chop them in half and split them.”
Pointing at three separate plants in his flowerbed, he added: “So this one, this one, and this one are all the same plants
“They also flower, so that’s good.”
Next on his list – irises, which you can also split to make multiple plants, saving you cash.
He continued: “Number two is irises.
“So these two plants are the exact same plant.
“These also flower. They’re done for the year, they flower in late spring. But again, every year chop them in half, and move them to a new location.
“Number three is the black-eyed Susan.
“It’s just getting ready to put up its flower stock.
“It grows nice and big, nice and vigorous, and again you can split this, every year.
“And lastly we have the coral bells.
“Super easy to split, have flowers pretty much all season.”
