Tt seems to have worked. While the existing leaves still have some brown edges, both containers are showing new growth.
Unfortunately, they got some damage this week (after these pics were taken) from a raccoon that went blundering through, but hopefully they can rebound.
I think this is probably the same raccoon(s) that flattened the grapevine and broke some significant branches of my hamelia. I'll be happy when he moves on to new territory.
I'm looking forward to the cooler weather now so I can begin digging some new beds and also working in the ones we have already.
But in the meantime, I'll enjoy what flowers I have left...
...and then sit on the patio and enjoy birds in the pine trees.
Have a great week.
