How does your garden grow? Hopefully with MASSIVE blooms!

For gardeners who enjoy growing flowers and decorative plants, nothings better than to successfully grow one that has massive, exhibition sized blooms! Most of these magazine-worthy flowers are grown indoors and take a ton of time, dedication, and patience to coax the award-winning bloom out – but there are ways for outdoor growers to achieve impressive results.

Blooming Roses

The first step towards getting the most out of an outdoor flower is to choose varieties that naturally grow big blooms, and many of these can be easily found as either seeds or sprouts in your local nursery when the spring season arrives. Common big blooms are found on sunflowers, hibiscus, lotus lily, and zinnia to name just a few.

When you’ve decided what flowers you want to plant, it’s time to make sure the basics are taken care of:

  • Start with the soil. Check the texture of your soil – make sure it can retain water well. Test the pH and look for evidence of nutrients in the soil (lots of earthworms!) and work some fertilizer or compost into the area you’ll be planting in. Give your new flowers a great start in nutrient-rich soil.

Start with the soil

  • Plant at the right time. Flowers planted outside will need to be planted during the right season, or they won’t make it. You’ll want to check the seed packet or do some research about when the optimum time to plant your chosen flowers is. Between February and July is generally a safe bet if you can’t find the specific month; just try to avoid planting until temperatures are above freezing during the night.

Working in the garden

  • Plant in the right location. Make sure flowers that need partial shade aren’t going to be placed in an area full sun, or vice versa. If you’re going to be planting a few different varieties, try to make sure they all have the same light/shade requirements.

Massive Bloom

Now that the all the basics have been taken care of, the flowers you plant should flourish if they’re watered daily, and the garden is maintained. If you want to make sure you’ve done everything possible to ensure the biggest blooms possible, try giving them Massive Bloom Formulation by Green Planet. Massive Bloom Formulation couples the naturally occurring gibberellic hormones with the plant steroid triacontanol to improve the fruit and flower set in your garden. Gibberellins have a variety of effects in plants, most notably stimulating rapid stem and root growth, along with the shortening of internodal spacing in flowers – the node is the part of the plant stem where the flowers first start to grow, and internodal space is what determines how tall the stem will be. Triacontanol is a naturally derived plant growth regulator that increases the rate of photosynthesis and Co2 utilization, which in turn increases fruit and flower set.

Together, Massive Bloom’s components work aggressively to produce and transport vital fluids and cell building materials to the flower sites - and it’s easy to use. Just dilute 20ml per gallon per week, stopping use the last three weeks of flowering to get the MASSIVE blooms you’re looking for!

Of course, plant enzymes are different from the thousands of enzymes found in the human body – and there are only four of them. These four enzymes work together to break down amino acids, fatty acids, and digest carbohydrates. These enzymes are the first step in making sure the nutrients are available for your hungry, growing plants – and they work hard doing it! These enzymes are working to make sure that all the vitamins and minerals are properly assimilated and distributed so they are available to uptake for your ravenous young sprouts.
