Feeding Your Plants

Feeding Your Plants

Like all living things plants need food. In the main those planted direct in the garden will derive sufficient food through the soil although those in pots and containers will need extra help.

One of the key steps is to know your soil type and to do what you can to resolve any issues such as poor drainage. A simple Ph. Tester is all you need. Prolonged wet weather can simply wash nutrients out of the soil meaning that you will need to take steps to replace them.

In the same way that you wouldn't plant a sun loving plant in deep shade do make sure that your soil is suitable for the plants you wish to grow. If it isn't then perhaps you need a rethink or plant them in pots and container rather than direct in the soil. Some plants such as Nasturtiums, thrive in poor soil whereas others require their soil to be nutrient rich.

The compost that we use in containers will contain nutrients but these will only last for a few weeks and will then need to be topped up with regular feeding. Slow release fertiliser works really well, removing the need to remember to feed and when combined with water storage crystals is perfect for those of us short on time.

Slow release fertiliser works really well, removing the need to remember to feed and when combined with water storage crystals is perfect for those of us short on time.

Foliar feeds are good for shallow soil and to aid rapid recovery after a pest attack.

Plants producing edible crops require more feed than others, especially if we wish to maximise the amount of fruit and vegetables produced. Outdoor crops will benefit from granular feed, such as Potato and Fruit Fertiliser being raked into the soil before sowing or planting with re-applications during the summer as per the manufacturer's instructions.

Container grown tomatoes and other "fruiting" plants, including aubergines, peppers and courgettes, need specialist high potash Tomato Feed once a week in liquid or soluble format. Leafy vegetables such as spinach and salad leaves plus herbs like basil, need a general purpose liquid feed.

If you want your plants to be healthy, strong and productive then it's up to you to ensure that they receive the right nourishment. It's not difficult, just know and look after your soil, know the individual plant's requirements and follow the manufacturer's instructions.
