Linda: It makes a lot of difference which varieties you are growing for
rebloom. Some are reliable for early bloom, unless the conditions are very
unfavorable. Extreme drought is one such condition. To rebloom, the plants
need at least SOME moisture, and if no rain falls, some must be given "by
hand". I was devastated last year (l995) because I got so little rebloom.
This year, August was an average of ten degrees cooler, and the whole year
much wetter than l995, and the rebloom has been satisfactory. Good luck!
