ONE: A water source.
Regular amounts of consistent water, not too much or too little. Probably quite a bit of water when the plants are young, then 3 to 4 times a week when the plants have established themselves. Good deep watering rather than light watering.
TWO: A fertilization program.
Use 16-16-8 garden fertilizer about every 4 weeks. Work it into the ground.
THREE: A bug/insect/snail repellent.
Make sure you are keeping the insects in check! Slugs and snails can wipe out a good flower garden in just a few days. Also, use the product Dipel on Petunias to keep the Tobacco Bud Worm from eating your Petunias.
These annuals were planted and fertilized and watered all in one day.
After just 6 weeks, the flowers are looking very full and bring a lot of color to this front bed area!
What kind of fertilizer do you use?
Do you have any good pictures of your annual flowers?
