Tip 1. You guessed it!, well maybe. If you know me you know I love to fertilize. Fertilizing my Flowering containers with Jack’s Bloom Booster Fertilizer. Here is the link if you would like to try it https://amzn.to/2Izyneh
This time of year they are really rooted into their containers so they need extra nutrients. I am fertilizing weekly and have been for some time. When I water, I always water underneath the flowers and foliage. This way it keeps them looking nice and bushy on top, not matted down. Oh and always make sure your containers have holes in the bottom for water to drain.
Tip 2. Then after watering, I will pull/pick any bad leaves or dead flowers to make the container look vibrant with color. This one is such a huge reason your gardens will look amazing through the fall. Picking away any of the brown leaves and dead flowers leaves green foliage and colorful flowers.
Tip 3. Next for our bug and worm problems on certain plants, I will use Organic Monterey to spray the plants. Here is the link if you would like to try it out https://amzn.to/30h0ji9
This will keep the leaves on your plants, especially flower kale from not being eaten away.

My raised garden beds are very unique, I love intermixing flowers into each raised bed right along with the vegtables. I do this because I wanted my raised garden beds to look Amazing and be functional. Our Raised beds are all located in our ‘Garden Oasis’. This is where we hang out the most so I want to make sure it feels and looks good!
I do put thought into what goes into each bed along with how each plant is placed. If something is going to trail it will need to be placed towards the outside of the raised bed. If something is going to be 3′ to 4′ tall then that is something that should get placed towards the middle of the raised bed.
I want the raised beds to look amazing once they are all grown in, so I need to be sure and place things where they will do well and look good at the end of the summer. In this video I will take you through each raised bed and show you what I have planted in each one and I will show where and why I planted certain things like I did.
This time of year, we are all swamped with all of the Zucchini being produced in our Gardens. And right now, everyone is talking about Zucchini Noodles!! So what do we do with all of that Zucchini?

No measuring, just toss in ingredients! Great flavor for the whole family. This recipe serves 1, so if you are cooking for more than one, then double, triple or quadruple the recipe! It’s that easy!
My Secrets on how to plant a window box, a Big and Beautiful window box! First off I like to remove the soil that is in the box and here is why. After the fall-time is over and the plants and flowers in the window boxes are dead I remove them. Once December comes, I like to cut and place pine bows into the box, that way they look nice and decorated for the winter season and Christmas of course, which is my favorite time of the year!
So, I remove the pine bows come spring along with the soil that is inside the window boxes. I replace with new soil and I use potting soil, Jolly Gardeners Pro Mix, which I get from my parents Garden Center. You will most likely have to go to a Garden Center to find this. I don’t think that the big box stores, like Home Depot, ect.. will have this. I really believe that having new fresh potting soil to start with is one of the reasons my boxes get so big and do so well!
After the soil is replaced with new potting soil, it’s time for one of my Secret Moves, this actually isn’t in the video either! I add in Osmocote Time Release fertilizer, you can follow the instruction on it, but basically you are going to sprinkle it over the top of the soil. This ensures that when we have those rainy days your plants are getting fertilized and not just rained on over and over again. To have big and beautiful window boxes everything needs to be fertilized. Adding this in makes a huge difference. It’s my fertilizing back up plan! Here is an Amazon link if you would like to purchase it https://amzn.to/2Me8BR0
After everything is planted I fertilize once per week with a water soluble fertilizer, Jack’s Bloom Booster. Then once mid season/summer comes around I am doing this twice per week! Here is a link for the Jack’s Bloom Booster if you would like to purchase it https://amzn.to/2KlM42n
Now check out the video where I will talk about the maintenance of the flowers and plants inside the window box and I will call out each plant and flower I used in this window box.
