I never considered that! But, I don't think that is the problem this time. It is rather a mystery...there are two large oak trees
in the front yard - one had a flower
bed planted beneath it, the other had nothing. I thought it made the yard look odd, so I put in a planter last spring
- new soil, etc. The older bed has plants
just blooming like crazy - they are all healthy and growing
strong. The new planter - well the plants
look healthy, but they have not changed their size whatsoever...except the tall stalks on the Gazania.
A mystery for certain!
