Question of the Week

By this time, our Salvia greggiis and other re-blooming salvias aren't looking too good. They often get rather woody and not as, let's say, floriferous, as you'd like them to be. This is easy to remedy. These are sub-shrubs and they often will grow up and into a rather woody state, losing their energy if they're not properly cared for.
If you will shear them back by about a third, put a little fertilizer around them, just a sprinkling, and water it in really well, you'll invigorate the plants to put on new growth.
That will encourage more blooming, because the flowers occur on the terminal ends of that new growth. So, the more new growth, the more flowers.
