Five Tips for Feeding Plants!

1) If you're growing plants in pots, ideally start feeding them about six weeks after planting, when nutrients from the compost will start to diminish. Stop feeding at the end of summer.

2) Make sure you choose the right food for the right plants! Food for flowering veg plants need a different balance of nutrients to food for fruit trees.

3) Feed little and often! This will ensure plants regularly have enough nutrients, and prevent losing too many nutrients to rainfall.

4) If a plant is stressed, wait until it has started to recover before feeding.

5) Not every plant needs food - for example nasturtium only flowers in poor soil, so feeding it will produce leafs with no flowers!
