I planted these flowers on Tuesday and they're still alive!! Halelujah! That never happens. I have been trying to get some flowers going in some of the containers we have around here. I planted some petunias a few weeks ago and they died the next day. I'm not sure why. I asked lots of questions when I was buying them. I made sure they were ok for full sun and even bought the bag of dirt they recommended. And YES I watered them! Our neighbors (the Master Gardeners) gave us six or seven flower/plants last week. I finally got around to planting those on Tuesday too. Yup - they're still alive too!
