Keep your annuals looking great all summer long

Do your annuals seem to always look great for the first few weeks after you planted them but then look ragged for the rest of the summer?  Here are a few tips to keep your annuals looking great all season long without breaking your back.

 

  1. When planting your annuals give them some elbow room to grow.
  2. Deep, infrequent watering rather than short daily sprinkling.
  3. Keep leaves dry longer by watering in the late evening or early morning.
  4. Keep the weeds out.
  5. Dead head when possible.

Remember when you’re out taking care of your plants makes sure you are keeping yourself hydrated.  Good luck!
