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.
We're continually adding new ideas and products to make growing plants easier!

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