It's not fair. One day, your garden is full of bright showy annuals. The next day, it looks thin and worn out. If your annuals run out of steam in the middle of summer, here's what you can do to fix the problem.
In nature, annuals are one-hit wonders. Their job is to bloom in the spring, then return to seed. Your job is to outsmart them by snipping off the dead blooms. That way, your annuals think it's still spring and will start pushing out more blooms. Keep doing it all summer, and you can have beautiful flowers deep into fall.
As with all plants, your annuals love nutrients and water. A deep watering once a week, coupled with regular applications of plant food, will help create a big splash of colorful blooms. You can feed and water at the same time with Miracle-Gro® Liquafeed.
