          Superbells Holy Cow calibrachoa has blooms with a soft yellow base with pink and white accents, which creates a striking mono hanging basket. It mounds up 6-12 in. and trails up to 2 ft. over the edge of the hanging basket. It attracts hummingbirds and does not require dead heading.

          Calibrachoa, better known as Superbells come in a variety of colors. The flowers I have are pink, white and yellow. They are a small flower like a petunia. The plant arrived in the mail and was well protected the way it was boxed. Air holes were provided and a protective covering was over the Calibrachoa. It looked healthy when I took it out of the box. The nursery that grows these will only choose the best plant to ship. These are best in flower boxes or hanging baskets. They prefer full sun and there is no need to deadhead the flowers. They will attract hummingbirds for the nectar. This is almost a maintenance free plant as it requires little watering.
          Pros: Great Quality, Vibrant Color

          A green lawn is a healthy lawn and a healthy lawn is a product of a thriving ecosystem within your soil. That's why Safer Brand has created Lawn Restore a fertilizer that immediately goes to work to ensure the proper balance of natural elements in your soil, in turn giving you a healthier, greener lawn. Backed by over a quarter-century of research and development, this formula is the best choice for any turf; use it to promote greening in fresh sod or bring life back to existing grass. And since Lawn Restore covers 25% more square footage than the previous formula, its more economical than ever before. Your grass feeds off of nutrients in your soil that are produced by beneficial bacteria and fungi. Lawn Restore feeds that bacteria and fungi so that they can naturally produce those nutrients that your grass needs to flourish. Other synthetic fertilizers directly feed the grass, not only neglecting the beneficial bacteria and fungi, but killing them off. Without these organisms in your soil, your grass cannot survive on its own. Rather than disrupting your soils valuable ecosystem, Lawn Restore promotes it, giving you a healthy, weed-free lawn, naturally. Not only does Lawn Restore make your lawn greener and fuller above ground, but it also promotes a deep, strong root system below ground. Strong roots are necessary in the long-term health of your turf, protecting it from drought, diseases and maintaining a natural flow of healthy nutrients to your grass.

          I spread Lawn Restore on my lawn and it's greening up already. My soil is not the best and I am continually getting bare spots. I have tried other fertilizers with little success. The Lawn Restore goes to work right away, no waiting days or weeks as with other fertilizers. The directions are on the bag that shows you the amount to use for a drop or rotary spreader. It should give you a fuller lawn as well as aiding in a strong root system They recommend you apply it in spring, summer, fall and early winter.

          These Impatiens were shipped from a greenhouse. The pictures I posted show the shipping carton and how the plants looked when I removed them. It came in a box that has holes for air flow and holds the flowers upright. They came very healthy and ready to plant. They require no deadheading and will bloom all season. These are annuals and do well in partial shade to full shade. They will do well in containers but I planted them on the east side of my house.
