if you do want to change food options you could get the time release osmokote , that is just little balls that you spread out on the soil

Good points. I've been fertilizing in the morning, figuring the plants would uptake it during the sunlight. The miracle grow stays on the rosebuds and burns them. I just fert them today, but from now on it will be at night.

Speaking of chive bulbs...lol.

I'm going to try and plant the Azaleas next weekend. Hopefully my software issue will be fixed so I can post a few pics.

Thanks for the invaluable tips.

The azaleas are done flowering for the year , the hollyhock and persian shields are getting big and everything else is growing very nicely

the azaleas were given to us by a friend who was taking them out of her own property so they still need some extra love , by next year they should be nicely established

best bet is to water really early or at night other wise the water is burning the plants belive it or not.fertiler spikes are helpful.most plants benifit from pruning cut,all dead or dying stuff off and once flowers have bloomed cut em off,burpees .com has lots of gardening tips skip wikipedia

A friend gave me a couple of tomato plants today. What do you figure is a good sun/shade combination. Maybe I'll put in some hot peppers too.

I'm already thinking about how to make sauce.

I'm really thankful that by the way my house sits I can get about any light combination.

I have a mostly shade for the azaleas.

Make sure your tomatoes get at least 6 hours of sunlight a day , they are a full sun plant and will need all of that sun to produce fruit to their best ability, you are lucky , we are not allowed to grow tomatoes here
