I am a really new inexperienced gardener. But here is a major problem I am having. When I buy annuals or perennials as soon as I plant them and when the original blooms die the next blooms to open are smaller and then the next time even smaller. I don’t know what i’m doing wrong. I have added time release fertilizer and then every 7-10 days use a water soluble fertilizer.
