verbena problem

I bought two trailing verbenas this year, planted one in the ground and one in a cedar box, about 4 inches deep. the one in the box never blooms. The buds seem to dry up and turn brown. The other one is beautiful. Could there be something in the cedar the plant doesnt like?

RE: verbena problem

what kind of media do you have in the cedar box.. how big is the box ... how much do you water it.. and how dry does it get in between waterings ...

and.. is the box in full sun???


RE: verbena problem

Full sun watered daily, M'gro potting soil, 10 x 10 x 4" rarely, if ever, dries out much. wood is western red cedar.

RE: verbena problem

Let it get more dry between watering. Verbena doesn't like to be wet all the time.
