Keep your annual flower pots and hanging baskets looking nice and fresh all season! Here are a few guidelines to follow:
Water your container every 2-3 days. In the heat of summer, you may need to water it every day.
If you want to feed your plants, use an all-purpose or bloom-boosting plant food every couple of weeks according to package instructions.
As you water, remove old blooms to encourage more blooming – a practice called deadheading. Don’t just pull off the dead petals – actually pinch off the little stem beneath the flower.
If your plants are looking spindly, pinch off the tips of the stems to stimulate them to produce more branches.
