Five handy hints for Beautiful, Brighter Garden with PowerFeed
Just like us, a garden flourishes if it is well fed. Ask any gardener and they’ll tell you that feeding your plants with the right fertiliser in the right amount can be the difference between an average garden and an outstanding one. The right diet can promote strong healthy growth, loads of flowers and a bumper crop of fruit.
Plants benefit most from a good dose of food when they are actively growing, so knowing when to feed can be as important as using the right fertiliser. For example winter vegetables and annuals grow actively through the cooler months when many other plants are dormant. Most deciduous trees like to be fed in spring when the first signs of new growth come through. Citrus are heavy feeders that like to be fed regularly through the growing season to promote high yields of fruit. Flowering bulbs like a good dose of food at planting time and again when they finish blooming. Other plants have insatiable appetites and like to be fed little and often.
If you want the best out of your garden it’s important to feed your plants and nurture the soil. This product does both.
