Grow and Establish Your Winter Flowers--Atlanta

See also

Now that your flowers are in the ground, you need to ensure they grow and root in for the winter.

If you haven't planted your flowers yet, find this flower planting task list.

Anyhow, here is your next task list:

  • Water your flowers every other day or so for the first few weeks.
  • Thereafter, water deeply a couple of times per week.
  • When they were first installed, we put down some fertilizer, if you didn't, do it.
  • Fertilize with a liquid fertilizer every two weeks, beginning two weeks out. Any liquid dissolvable fertilizer labeled for 'Flowers' will do. Follow label instructions.
  • Ensure flowers stay mulched until the fill in the gaps. Thereafter mulch will be unnecessary, and also impossible to put down.
  • Weed by hand once a week. Eventually, once flowers have filled in well, this will not be such a big chore. Something you can do while fetching the mail.
  • I just throw the dead weeds on the driveway to shrivel and die.
  • Dead head faded and dead blooms.

That pretty much sums up the maintenance side.
