Make sure the Proven Winners plants you select have the same light and water requirements. Purchase equal numbers of each – two each for a 14″ container and three or more for larger containers.
For containers in full sun, water your plants thoroughly once a day, maybe even twice a day during times of extreme heat. Those planted in light shade may require slightly less frequent watering. It is always best to water in the morning if possible, and to direct the water towards the roots rather than wetting the foliage. Watering needs change as temperatures cool. The best test is to insert your finger into the soil about an inch down. If it’s dry, water.
