What Are the Tiny White Spots on My Petunias?

Healthy petunias have a better chance of withstanding infection and infestations than weak ones. Make sure your petunias are getting enough sun, water and fertilizer. Petunias prefer full sun but, in places with very hot afternoon sun, a little afternoon shade is best. Water to a depth of 6 to 8 inches, as the University of Rhode Island recommends, once the soil is dry. Drip irrigation or soaker hoses will keep the water at the roots and keep it off the foliage where it invites botrytis and other fungal infections. According to the University of Rhode Island Extension, 1 lb. of 10-10-10 dry fertilizer or 2 lbs. of 5-10-5 fertilizer applied at planting per 100 square feet will suffice.

Care for container garden while vacationing

Should I leave my container garden out in the potential heat (or rain)? or put it safely in the 3 sided entrance walkway to the backdoor where the containers will surely receive no rain, sunshine, or drought?
I have 7 plastic two-gallon containers, one metal 30 gallon container, one plastic five gallon container, 3 plastic 40 gallon container, one ceramic 5 gallon container, one large hanging cocoa-liner basket, one small plastic hanging basket and one ceramic 3 gallon container. Most contain vegetables (including the large hanging basket). Peppers, tomatoes, and spinach as well as wave petunias, daisies, pansies (that the stupid rabbit keeps finding a way to eat!!!), marigolds, and other random flowers that sounded good while browsing the nursery
