Just like us, a garden flourishes if it is well fed. Ask any gardener and they’ll tell you that feeding plants with the right plant food (fertiliser) in the right amount can be the difference between an average garden and an outstanding one. The right fertiliser diet can promote strong, healthy growth, loads of flowers and a bumper crop of fruit.
Plants have different nutrient requirements that must be matched with the right fertiliser formation. There are:
- Gross feeders such as roses and gardenias that are very much like teenage boys. They require a lot of nutrients and a fertiliser that is high in potassium to grow strongly to produce high yields of vibrant blooms.
- Aussie natives require a fertiliser that is low in phosphorus as many of these plants are sensitive to that nutrient.
- Fast growing and repeat harvest vegetables such as lettuce need a fast-acting liquid fertiliser that is high in nitrogen for leafy growth.
- Indoor potted plants need a slow-release balanced diet. This formulation is ideal for helping plants to cope with the stresses of pot life.
Whatever plant you need to feed, there is plant food formulated to suit, depending on application. Seasol and PowerFeed range of liquid and granular products feeds the whole garden while improving the soil naturally.
