Posted on

After potting, your plants will need feeding for several weeks.

Feeding guide

  • Bedding plants, tomatoes, salad crops – feed for 5 to 6 weeks
  • Houseplants, fuschias, chrysanthemums – feed for 6 to 7 weeks
  • Herbs, geraniums (pelargoniums) – feed for 7 to 8 weeks
  • Roses, herbaceous plants – feed for 8 to 9 weeks
  • Shrubs, trees, ferns – feed for 9 to 10 weeks

What type of fertilizer to use

Always try to use organic or slow release fertilizers. Liquid feeds always work faster. We recommend 5Fs Fertilizer and NuGro liquid feed.
