Watering Notes Annuals planted in containers should be watered by soaking the soil well and not watered again until the surface is dry about 1/2" down. This is on average every 2-3 days. Planted in the ground, annuals will need frequent watering when first planted, but
Fertilize Notes Most annuals are grown for their flowers and need a high phosphorus fertilizer like 10-20-10. They should be fertilized monthly. Or fertilize every 2-3 weeks if using a liquid feed program.
