    The annuals have some fertilizer in the growing packs, I don’t know if the potting mix really makes much difference – annuals are programmed to bloom their little hearts out, since they’ll be gone at the end of the season. I planted petunias in couple large containers on my deck, in whatever soil that was there already (at least 5 years old). I just stuck the plants in, and they’re thriving.

    I rarely do annuals but these are so cheery. Patriotic, too, with their red, white, and blue. Although francophile that you are, they’re probably bleu, blanc, rouge (it always amuses me that the same colours signify so differently when placed in different order.

    Rita – perhaps, but this time they filled in *much* faster and fuller than when I’d previously used other non-fertilized potting soils.

    Sher – I don’t do well with indoor plants; for some reason always forget to water them!

    materfamilias – yes the color scheme is intended as patriotic for the 4th, but I hadn’t made the French Connection (heh!).

    Too funny. I have no idea what you’re talking about.

    We have a lovely garden and I know nothing about gardening except for cutting flowers — not pruning mind you — for bouquets; plucking tomatoes off the vines and on occasion bending over to rip a cucumber off its prickly, hairy vine.

    That’s it.

    Oh yes that stuff does work! My Dad swears by it. And the stuff is great for anything that you might be planting for indoors.

    Pony packs? Is this what we call ‘six packs’ here?

    Toby – I’d guess they’re the same, as pony packs usually have six seedlings.

    What a good reminder – I need to feed my plants. Loved the photo of your LA do on WendyB’s. Looks like a good time…
