To keep my flowers and plants looking good in the hot Texas sun, I need to water and fertilize them regularly. I do my best to keep up with watering, but fertilizing is my downfall. I just don't like to mess with it because it's usually a pain in the butt and just plain icky.
I had my hubby and daughter help me get the flowerbed below planted. It was a nice way for us to all work together too.
Fertilizing is no longer a problem for me with the Pennington Smart Feed. It's pretty simple and saves so much time. As a work at home mom, anything that is an easy time saver is awesome. I also like to save money anywhere I can. The sprayer system is reusable and sells for around $12.99 and the refill tablets start at only $9.99. This is a great deal since each tablet fertilizes up to 300 sq. feet. and comes in three varieties.
You also save money by using half the water of other application systems. The tablets are pre-measured to supply the right nutrient to water ratio with no mess. The Smart Feed System delivers 100% of it's nutrients in about 10 minutes versus using 100 gallons of water per application with typical feeders. Hubby sprayed the above flowerbed in about 2-3 minutes.
I also used it on a couple banana trees I am trying to save and bring back to life. I will update this post very soon with pictures of my beautiful flowerbed and hopefully healthy banana trees.
