    Watering and fertilizing are certainly key to container gardening.

  4. In my experience of growing M & M’s I have achieved great success of
    growing the blue variety by sprinkling a teaspoon of copper sulfate in each
    of the beds.

  5. Blue is a hybrid. Although it is one of the primary colors, and green
    should be a combination of red and yellow, in horticulture there is excess
    chlorophyll. The best way to obtain blue is to reverse the process and
    return to the primary colors by extracting chlorophyll.
    This can be confirmed by the Luther Burbank Gardens, Santa Rosa,
    California:

  6. I grew blue M&Ms successfully last year. I added Miracle Grow – the blue
    fertilizer weekly.

  7. This is very cute.. wish it had been around when my children were little..
    hahah.. maybe if I ever get grandchildren we will “grow” some m&m”s

    Growing your own in containers- the essentials!

  9. We.ve found that M&Ms are similar to hydrangea and respond to soil pH.
    Recall that if your soil is acidic you’ll have blue flowers and if your
    soil is basic you have pink flowers. If you acidify the soil a little bit
    using tea or vinegar you can increase the proportion of blue M&Ms. By
    adding lime or wood ash you increase the number of red & orange pips in the
    pods.
