Homeowner Growing and Maintenance Tips:

Deadheading not necessary for continuous bloom. Plants will "bury their dead" (new flowers will quickly cover old flowers) so no deadheading necessary.  An application of fertilizer or compost on garden beds and regular fertilization of plants in pots will help ensure the best possible performance
