How to Prepare Your Soil

To prepare a bed or container for planting annuals, you must first look at the soil you are planting in. It is a good idea to add compost or fertilizer before planting and after as needed. It is also important that your soil be well-drained, as most annuals will not respond well to being too moist.

To ensure flowering throughout the season, fertilize your annuals once a week with an all-purpose water-soluble fertilizer as well as a granular fertilizer at the beginning of the season. This will ensure your annuals best performance.
