- Slow release fertilizers are best because they feed throughout the growing season and do not leach (wash) into the ground water.
- Mulch plants to reduce watering requirements, suppress weed growth and minimize soil temperature changes.
- Plant hibiscus, bougainvillea or mandevilla vines in containers for tropical landscape color.
- As the weather gets warmer, regular fertilizing of your pot plants with a water soluble product will bring rich color to your environment.
