Many of you received or purchased flowering hanging baskets this past weekend. The plants look good now, and I am sure you want to keep the plants looking good. If you want those plants to continue to flower, you need to fertilize the plants on a regular schedule. If you use a fertilizer that you dissolve in water, you should be applying the fertilizer every two to three weeks. As the season goes on and the plant continues to grow, you should fertilize the plant every seven to 10 days. This fertilizing schedule will keep those hanging baskets looking good.
Well, that’s all for this week. I’ll talk to you again next week.
