A pretty bouquet for my daughters birthday.

M daughter turned 23 on Friday, and my miniature rose bushes have been doing so well, i put together different colors and types for her birthday table.

I think I may have made an amazing discovery!  I received a cute little bottle of fertilizer from my friend for my birthday. Honestly, the only thing I read on the bottle was the very simple instructions on the cap. 1 tablespoon in a gallon of water. So, i mixed it up and put it on all the plants in my tire garden. You see, my husband and I were leaving on a 3 day trip, so I hurriedly did it as we were just about to leave.

Well, when we returned, everything was growing like gangbusters! I had two eggplants, ready to pick, that I had not even seen on the bushes before we left.  The rose bushes not only were MUCH LARGER, but masses of roses were blooming, and the flower heads seem like they are twice as big!!! My tomato bushes had seemingly larger tomatoes that what they should have. I'm really not kidding!

Now.....are you wondering what this miracle juice is????

It is made by Bonnie Plants, called Herb and Vegetable Plant Food.  It is sold at garden centers, Lowes, and probably Home Depot. A little green jug containing magic....if you ask me. ;)

This is just my own assessment....i have nothing to do with this company. I am about to go all around my yard and put this stuff around all my plants. I am actually wondering what it would do for my yard....
And my hibiscus. I would really like to push them to their maximum bloom potential. I will report what happens, for sure.

I fertilized the repotted red and white begonias that I had cut back as well, just today. I can hardly wait to see how that pot looks in a week!

Hope everyone has a great upcoming week!!!

That is one bodacious birthday bouquet. Congrats to the B-day gal! I wonder if it's possible to make that miracle juice for human consumption?
