Feeding and watering pots and containers
Plants that are grown in pots and containers rely more heavily on plant food and regular watering than those grown in the soil.
This is because they are grown in isolation and cannot extend their roots into the ground in the search for nutrients or moisture.
Most plants in pots and containers need the soil to be kept slightly moist to thrive.
During hot temperatures you may need to water your pots and containers every day to keep them thriving.
One way to reduce the risk of under-watering is to plant your pots and containers in Gro-Sure Easy Containers Compost, which contains clay granules which soak up water and release it gradually when the plant is in need. This compost also contains 6 months feed, which means you can skip the step below!
As a general rule, pots and containers should be fed at least once a week from spring until the autumn.
If you want to boost the flowering at the end of its season, switch to a plant food with a higher potassium content, such as Gro-Sure Tomato Food.
