amaranthus doesn't seem to be doing much

18 years ago

Hi all

Decided to try them again though I've never had much success in the past. Instead of starting from seed as I had always done before, this time bought 4 plants. I planted in 4 different locations as an experiment to find out if they would perform better elsewhere. All locations get at least 6 hours of sun/day. 3 area are rather sandy soil one of which gets much more water than the others. The 4th is in a raised bed. None of them has grown quite as much as I had expected. They are all about the same size -- approx 7 inches tall. Planted them back in early to mid June. Quite disappointing. Any possible ideas as to what I'm doing wrong?
