It is the weirdest thing. Mine did so poorly all summer but of course the hail storms here didn't help. It was looking so bare for a while that I just kept buying plants on clearance and putting them in. About 4 weeks ago mine suddenly took off and it now is growing like weeds. Twigs that used to be potted petunias that I stuck in the soil have taken off and grown into 19 inch wide patches of beautiful flowers. All the plants are growing into one another now because I put so many new plants in. I guess the summer is too hot here but once the temps dropped to the 80's this thing took off. I love it. So have you already pulled your garden or is it still going strong?
