When is the best time to apply feed to my plants?
Fertilisers should only really be applied to support peak growth periods, this tends to be early spring for most plants when the days get longer and the sun intensifies. Again autumn is often a big growing point for many plants. A number of plants will respond well to smaller, regular feeds throughout the year, plants like roses, vegetables and herbs do well when fed small, regular doses. Remember, feeding during the hotter months will increase water demand and increase stress on plants, even reducing fruiting.
