3 Ways to Make Your Annuals Look Great All Summer

  1. Mulch – top dressing the soil in your flower beds, even with just an inch or two of compost, helps tremendously
  2. Fertilize – It takes a lot of energy for blooming plants to continuously put on their show, help them by providing nutrients with a slow-release or water soluble fertilizer
  3. Dead Head – Removing spent blooms, especially on Geraniums, Dahlias, and many other blooming plants can encourage new buds to emerge
