In the past, I have always had a vegetable garden during the summer. When we moved into this apartment, having a garden was no longer an option. I still love plants, and since I do not have a yard to plant vegetables and flowers in, I want to make some platers to put out on my porch. The good thing about that is that now that it is geting coller, I can bing them inside until the weather warms up again.
My problem is that whenever I plant in planters, my plants never do well. Thanks to the Gardenieres, I have learned how to plant properly. This video was especially helpful.
My biggest problem was that I always used dirt, instead of a potting mix. I had no idea that there was a difference. I learned from the video that potting mix is especially formulated to help potted plants grow to their ful potential. I also never used planters that have holes in the bottom. In fact, several of my house plants are in containers that have no drainage holes. Now I know why they don't do well.
Miracle-Gro Potting Mix feeds plants for up to six months because it contains Miracle-Gro Continuous Release Plant Food, and it's rich, organic materials help improve drainage and air flow. I have used Miracle-Gro's Expand and Gro in the past, and I loved it. So did my African Violets!
You can talk to fellow gardeners and share your ideas for the Fall with them by liking the Miracle-Gro Facebook page. You can also find tons of ideas for your Fall gardens by watching all the Gardenieres videos. I browsed through a few of them, and I can not tell you how badly I wish I had a yard to plant flowers and bushes in.
