When You Water Stuff

Since I moved into my house 9 years ago, my Black-Eyed Susans have been going downhill... The leaves never looked healthy and the flowers became fewer and less attractive.

But this year they took off early in the spring and grew like crazy!  This was also one of the rainiest springs that I can remember.

So, never the fool, I put two and two together.  Rain... Plants...  Water... Plant growth...

At the end of June, when the rain stopped coming, I started pouring a full watering can on my Susans and other flowers, and I can't (duh) believe the difference.  (Click on picture twice)

Next year:  Miracle Grow Fertilizer!

Amazing how simple it can be!

And Miracle grow is GOOD stuff. It really does work.
