    I planted a packet of Wildflower seeds mid-June in a large flower pot. They are only a little over an inch tall, but all the sudden they stopped growing. :( Also, their leaves stopped sprouting and turned a yellow-green color.

    Our local greenhouse dumps their out of season/unsold stuff in the town's leaf dump. I regularly after they do this grab the potting soil they leave, I mean why not use it, it's free! Last year there were a whole lot of bulbs with the soil, so I grabbed those too and planted them out on the...

    I really have a "black thumb" when it comes to planting flowers outside or even in pots outside. :confused: I want to do it right this year! I live in Delaware. Where I live, the condo association puts mulch down and trims the bushes, but we're on our own as far as planting flowers. I bought...
