Growing & Maintenance Tips for Tropaeolum majus ''Alaska Mix''

Grows best in full sun, average to well-drained soil. Fertilize at half rates for the best balance of foliage and bloom.  Fertilize more in containers than for plants in the ground.  It is incredibly tolerant and easy to grow in the ground or in a container. It is a strong pollinator supporter with ample nectar for all the native bees and butterflies that frequent your garden.
