How do you care for your plants during the change of seasons?

Posted by   + Show Post

We gave moms a Cool Wave pansy plant and asked them to enjoy it with their families. We think that these plants will be an excellent addition to their landscape.

Read about their experiences below!

Love the purple ones!

I was completely expecting A plant. Not this many. I was really suprised when the Fed Ex man showed up at my door with this huge box.


How gorgeous are those purple ones?


These definately exceeded my expectations.

I do not have a green thumb at all, so my DH takes care of all the plants.  He puts the houseplants outside in the summer then brings them inside in the winter.

When I used to live in my apartment I had potted plants that I kept outside. And as it got cooler (frost in the morning), I used to put plastic (milk jugs with the bottom cut off) over my plants over night so they would live longer. Then I would take it off as it warmed up outside.

Just received my Burpee Cool Wave Pansy plants, and this is how they came!  They are gorgeous right out of the box.  I live in NJ, and it's still good weather, so I am going to set them on the back porch for right now.  The instructions say they are good for part shade, and my backyard is just like that, we get some sun and some shade. 

Very excited to see how they grow!

Thanks for the great feedback so far, Moms! We're excited to see photos of your Cool Wave gardens this fall - and again in spring! Cool Wave pansies are cold-tolerant and will withstand light frost, so there's no need to move containers inside at night when temperatures dip below freezing. If planted in the ground, Cool Wave pansies will overwinter up to USDA Zone 5 and will return again in spring earlier than other pansies. If you're located in the south,  you can enjoy your Cool Wave pansy blooms all winter long

To find out what zone you're located in, visit:
http://www.usna.usda.gov/Hardzone/ushzmap.html, and for some creative planting ideas visit: http://www.wave-rave.com/Howto/CoolWaveFallDecorating.aspx.

Happy planting!
