I planted a CG from Annie's Annuals a few months ago in large half wine-barrell in sun from about 11:30 on. It's now about 4-5' tall, with two major stalks, and there is no sign of impending bloom as September starts. Should I expect bloom its first season? Is it a heavy feeder (bloom food)? Is it a biennial?
As a side question, as these two main stalks grow taller, I'm wondering if I should have 'pinched' it earlier to give it a more horizontal habit? Is it too late to do anything about that?
