Answer: It sounds as though your soil needs a little help. While most gardeners plant on whatever soil type is available in the garden plot, you may improve your soil by bringing in topsoil or a soil mix, or by applying liberal amounts of organic materials such as animal manure, rotted leaves, or compost. Work organic matter into the soil to a depth of about 8" for annuals. Water the plants well after planting, then water deeply once or twice a week (depending upon weather). It is also important to choose plants based upon their exposure requirements; shade loving plants for shady spots and sun lovers for sunny spots.
Hope you have a beautiful flower garden this year!
