I planted my raised box garden and only use your miracle grown garden soil. Everything comes up fast and looks great till the veggies start making then it's like everything comes to a halt. The veggies stop growing and flowers are long time coming. It only gets sun from noon till dark because of a large tree.

Vegetables need sun to be able to create carbohydrates which are essential for them to bear crops. Your garden site gets fair sun exposure. I would try providing a little boost of fertilizer from a quickly available product such as Miracle Gro, following label instruction. Maintain adequate soil moisture and see if this helps improve your results.

Thanks for the question. Please stop in again soon!
