Hi fellow revelers,
Just wanted to let you know that, although there was vigorous debate, the jury of my peers voted against using the old Plant-Tone, so I tossed it, not in the garden but in a contratctor’s bag. (see the old post here). I still am not sure it was the right thing to do and realize I could have done a test-swatch of soil, but c’est la vie. We move on…to the next
QUESTION: It’s the middle of the day, on a hot one, and I just bought some border flower plants (about four of the small containers), including impatiens and petunias. I know it’s not wise to water plants in the middle of the day, since doing so could expose the leaves to sunburn, but what about planting? Is there a better time of the day to put some flowers in the ground? Is this one of them? When is ideal to plant these babies? It’s my birthday … give me the gift of answers … go ahead, gimme the dirt!
