I tend to gather my deck pots around our fountain and this year they are looking very lush. Last year the morning glories were pathetic, so this year, despite reading that one should not over fertilize them at the expense of flowers, I did just that. They have climbed the trellis very nicely and we are just beginning to get a few blooms. They are "Grandpa Ott's" - a beautiful heirloom variety in deep purple. The rest of the deck plantings are benefiting from the additional feedings, as well.
