    We planted some pansies in a sub-division here in Atlanta in mid October and treated the beds with Snapshot. To make a long story short, the plants seem to be growing fine but we are not getting the blooms that we expected. This has never happened to us before.

    Would Snapshot effect the ability of the pansy to flower? If so, is there a way to reverse it. If not, is there an amendment to add to get the plant flowering as it should?

    Thanks for any help or suggestions

    Snapshot won't affect the plants. It sounds as if the flowers could use a shot of fert., something along the line of a water soluble, 12-32-16

    Same thing has happened to me. The pansies I have planted are not blooming as well last year. I use SNAPSHOT in all of the bed I treat plus I tilled in bonemill and a starter fert. It's Weird!
