Fertilize all annuals with an all purpose fertilizer once a week and alternate every third week with a Miracle Grows Bloombooster. If you do it this way you can cut your all purpose fertilizer to the amount each week. This will give you beautiful blooms all season long.
Deadheading is not always necessary but recommended giving the plant more energy to produce fuller blooms as well as new buds.
If you dare cut back you're hanging baskets around the 4th of July to the rim of the basket. This will promote more lateral branching and blooms, extending the life of your Beautiful hanging basket.
Always deadhead! In preparation of Japanese Beetles buy the Bayer Rose Fertilizer and Pesticide. Also anything containing Neemoil will keep away Japanese Beetles.
