Wanda,

Angel trumpet needs a bright area but doesn't like noon to late day sun or it really tends to wilt. Keep the soil moist but not soggy, and feed regularly with a soluble plant food such as Miracle Gro for the first few weeks after planting. Then switch to either a slow release fertilizer at the label rate, or a standard turf type fertilize split into 3 applications 4 weeks apart. Apply about 1/4 cup evenly throughout a 4 foot circular area around the plants for each of the 3 applications.

Thanks for the question. Please stop in again soon!
