Re: Silver Saw fertilizer


Well, it's a moot point now as my friend came over and moved the concrete
blocks from the area where I wanted to put it. I got out there tonight and
yanked all the weeds out and planted it. The other has been in the ground
for a week or so. Maybe a tad longer. I put the fertilizer (along with a
generous amount of Preen) around it and watered it in.

Hope they do well. they are gorgeous, even small.
