I go out and water at night. There are some changes I'd like to make -- I think this is the last year I will try to grow Black & Blue salvia, it just never looks like anything. I am getting a few blooms, but not much. It's all light green foliage.
Instead I want to take it out of the big navy blue pot and put the little struggling plumbago in there.
