So, looks like any high hopes I had for my orange mums have been dead-headed away. Yep, these used to be orange.
Now what brown nasty flowers you see in this picture have been dead-headed and tossed.
No idea what I did ... Or didn't do, but either way - it didn't work out so well for these poor flowers.
I have to say, now that I dead-headed the plants, at least my flower boxes look like they are filled with greens ... not pathetic flowers hanging on to life by a thread.
I've always said I'm not a green thumb, but I think this attempt may be hands-down, what one would call an epic fail. I mean really. Who can't plant some flowers in dirt (that said it "feeds plants for up to 6 months" -whatever) and watch them grow. Of course, we all know who. Zip it. :)
At least winter is ahead. I can just blame it on freezing temperatures soon.
I would ask for advice like in the past ... But I think my lack of a green thumb is beyond help.
