Hello Sue, hope your thumb is getting better.
I have a question. I bought 2 Indian Hawthorne 1 gallon plants at Home Depot 2 years ago. They have hardly grown in the two years. Yesterday I noticed a near by house had 8 planted one year ago, and they have really taken off.
Gus the landscaper said Home Depot sells 2nd class plants with not great root systems, while the near by house probably had a landscaper get their plants at a regular wholesale nursery. Could this be true?
My Gardner turns the soil every few weeks where the Indian Hawthorne plants are. I lightly fertilize about every 6-8 weeks.
Just wondering if you know why big box store plants grow slower?
