post-planting care

In order to induce continual vigorous growth, blooming, and bushiness; pinch out the terminal growth buds on tall lanky annuals. Fertilize your annuals every three to four weeks with an all purpose, water soluble fertilizer such as a 20-30-20. Encourage repeat blooming by removing dead flowers (dead heading).
