KNOCK OUT ROSES... stealing the show in my garden this evening.Container Tip:
I have just a few more annuals that need to be planted in the garden. Tonight I completed a couple of moss hanging baskets. I have been recycling the wire hanging baskets for about four years now. This year I found replacement moss at Walmart for CHEAP!
#1 - Mix SOIL MOIST in the potting soil you are using in your hangers. ESPECIALLY in the hanging moss baskets because they have a tendency to dry out fast. Adding this product to your basket will help with watering.
#2 - don't over crowed the flowers. GIVE THEM ROOM TO GROW. In this 10 inch basket I am using 3 ( 1 by 2) potted annuals.
#3 - ADD your favorite slow release fertilizer. This will help you with the work of fertilizing!
#4 - ENJOY ... that is the easy part! IF you use these simple tips you will enjoy your basket for the entire season.
Container Idea to share :
I thought this container was just too pretty to not share. I mixed the Mosquito plant with vinca vine on the deck . I love the wonderful scent it puts off when I gently brush up against it while on the deck.
