Love the bluish mat and the upright sassy nature of the pinks bloom, but the three "Star" series plants I put in containers last year (1 plant per 16 inch diameter wooden container, watered weekly, zone 8b western exposure) are pouting this year. Only the Neon Star has offered more than a few blooms, and even it is showing half the bloom of last year. Have I done these lovelies a disservice by planting in containers?

Best, Katy

Katy... I don't really know.

The first Mrs. Bath's pinks I ever owned lived in a clay pot for a year before it got in the ground. I get new ones every time I move, and it seems to me they do better after a year or two, when they really take off.
