Hi all,

I have two pots of flowers outside my front door the plants growing in them have been grown from seed. the same amount were sown in both pots.

in one pot the plants are very hardy and strong but in the other the plants are weak and not growing great. i give both the same amount of water and feed. is there any way i can help the weaker pot?

the pots cant be moved as they are heavy.

thanks in advance

I think it's just like having two children one is thin one is fatter on a lighter note maybe there's less sun on one pot or you overwatered or underwatered one ?

If you have treated both pots the same up to now, try switching their positions and continue to treat them as before. See what happens in a couple of weeks.
