2 Ways to Pamper for Your Container & Houseplants This Summer

With the summer season halfway over, it’s time to think about your container and house plants. Thankfully this summer in Indiana hasn’t been overwhelmingly hot, rather cool this past week actually, which is perfect for your growing flowers and plants. That said, here are two quick tips for your mid-summer gardening regimen.

Feed Flowers in Containers

You want your annuals to stay in tip-top shape of course, so it’s essential that you feed them, which in plant form means fertilizer. You can either use a slow-release fertilizer, more granular in nature, at the start of it growing season and then again in 2 months. Or, you can use an all-purpose liquid fertilizer every two weeks i.e. Miracle-Gro.

Move Your Houseplants Outside

Houseplants love the warmth and sun summer provides, so summer is an ideal time to move your indoor tropical plants outdoors for a little extra pH. However, slowly reacclimatize them to the outdoors by first placing them in the shade, protected from our strong and gusty Indiana wind. Doing this will quickly add an abundance of new growth to your leafy friends.

These are two really easy and beneficial suggestions for you container and houseplants this summer. If you have any questions, or if you’re interested in renting a few garden tools to help you in all your green-thumbed glory, please visit our website. We hope to hear from you soon!
