Fertilizing Your Container Gardens



On initial planting I like to use a slow-release fertilizer followed up by weekly applications of 20-20-20 at half-strength.  Deadheading is important too as it encourages the plant to continually produce new blooms.  Correct watering is vital for success.  See May 16th post for watering instructions that will make your containers healthy and durable.

Hi Shirley,

Glad that you entered my contest and liked the Beach Chair and Sarong Landscape!

Alsom thanks so much for taking the time to explain hoe to make a mosaic. I tried the site, but when I loaded in the URL of my pictures and clicked "Create," it went to a screen that had a blank space where I assume the mosaic should be. Should I be signing in or something first for it to work?
