Container garden care
• Water often and thoroughly. Container gardens usually need daily watering in hot weather, and some plants (such as fuchsia, impatiens and hibiscus) will need water twice a day. If the soil becomes dry and hard, set the container in a bowl or bucket of water for a couple of hours to rehydrate.
• Pinch off yellowing or problem foliage and spent flower blooms to encourage lush growth and flowers.
• Fertilize containers every two weeks to assure growth and bloom. Use a bloom-booster fertilizer on flowering plants.
