In honor of May here are some of our best tips to make sure your flowers flourish this Summer! 

 

PINCH

Pinch the heads off newly planted flowers! The plant will put energy towards roots instead of flowering. 

 

WATER

This is a given BUT it is the most important thing you can do when caring for your flowers. For the best results and to avoid any fungal diseases make sure and water the soil and not the foliage. 

 

WEED

Weeds not only over-run your garden they are also known to harbor diseases and pests. Stay ahead of the problem by weeding your flowers regularly. 

 

DEADHEAD

Remove old or dead flower heads to promote more blooming. As an added bonus it will also help keep your plants looking nice and neat. 

 

NEW SOIL

Over time your flower’s soil will lose nutrients and its ability to properly sustain the flower. Replacing the soil can help breathe new life into your flowers.
