Fall Inspiration With Miracle-Gro

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Miracle-Gro for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

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.
