Hello, my name is Jose Zuniga and I'm representing expertvillage.com. Isn't this great, we've finished planting our Mexican Heathers and now we're going to be able to enjoy it throughout the year. Remember it blooms every single month. What are we going to do? Be sure to water it at least every other day and remember when it comes to watering, we've got to do it in the evening after 6 pm. If you do it midday, all you're doing is just waisting your money and the plants aren't going to get anywhere. If you want to go a little bit further, you can always buy plant food, you can do that. Another thing that you can do is be sure that you weed your flowerbed at least once a week. We don't want those weeds to invade the area and that's going to slow the growth in the Mexican Heather. As you go you have to mulch it at least once a month, you've got to retain that moisture. You've got to weed the flowerbed at least once a week, because if you let those weeds just control your flowerbed, what's going to happen is they're going to reduce the growth of your plant any other plant as well. We don't want to do this, so remember these tips and you'll be fine. You want to be the envy of the neighborhood and you want to enjoy your Mexican Heather's and this is how we maintain our Mexican Heather's.
