My flowers were not blooming as well as they should so I thought they needed fertilizer. I wanted them to look as healthy and happy as possible. I stopped by my local nursery and asked for the best fertilizer for encouraging blooms. They told me not to fertilize when the weather is as hot as it has been. My problem was not a lack of fertilizer but the excessive heat. I never knew. This pot should be full of blooms.
As a side note, as the weather has become more pleasant- upper 80’s and lower 90’s as opposed to days on end over 100 degrees-the flowers around our yard have started coming to life again. Yeah!
