Sprucing Up Summer Containers

July 25, 2014

Hopefully you’ve been regularly dead heading and feeding your containers a liquid fertilizer every two weeks. But, by mid-summer even well cared for containers can look a little tired, especially if they have experienced heat or drought. Flowering annuals such as petunias or million bells can be cut back by half. In two weeks they will respond with new foliage and a fresh flush of blooms. Consider replacements although they might be harder to find in the garden centers at this time of year. For replacements think outside the box. Some house plants can be wonderful additions to containers. With continued dead heading, feeding, some sharp pruners and maybe a replacement plant or two, your containers will continue to provide beauty through the growing season.
