For 2018, Kolze's has added new ideas and products  to make growing plants easier!

 Understanding the growing habits of plants is a necessity to get the most "bloom for your buck".

 

Our care sheets direct you to giving each plant exactly what it wants for optimal results.

-Heavier doses of Miracid (1 tablespoon/gallon) will correct struggling plants faster.

 

-Lower doses of Miracid (1 teaspoon/gallon) can be used for a mixture of plant types. Note: All impatiens & lobelia are sensitive to high amounts of feeding.

 

-All feeding is best on +70 degree days or warmer.

 

-More water on windy, warm days.

 

-Blooming increases as plants get exposed to the sky directly for rain and light.

 

-Feeding is increased June 15-August 15. (This is when plants are working hard!)

 

-Calibrachoa (aka Million Bells) are sensitive to feeding during cooler weather (below 70 degrees)

 

-All containers need new soil each year...THE #1 COMMON PROBLEM WHEN TROUBLESHOOTING!
