Growing Tips:

  • Likes full sun

  • This combination of plants does best in warm summer temperatures

  • Remove old flowers on Marigold and Geranium plants. Pinch back to keep full

  • Plants like regular water. Keep moist but not soggy; allow soil to dry out a bit between waterings

  • Feed every two weeks with a water-soluble fertilizer. Hydrolyzed fish fertilizer mixed with kelp works wonders
