Feeding Your Plants
One of the most difficult messages to get across to gardeners is that plants need extra feed to reach their full potential. Even though they may seem to be growing well you will be amazed how much better they will perform with a proper feeding regime.
Garden soils are quickly depleted by heavy rain and vigorous plant growth and one of the first things to become unavailable are specific minerals and trace elements. These are essential to healthy plant growth and can be replaced using a good quality plant food.
Make Feeding Plants Simple
To make feeding simple, use Gro-Sure All Purpose Plant Food. It is specially formulated to suit most garden plants and will provide a generous proportion of all the essential plant nutrients, plus trace elements to keep plants performing. However, for the best results with ericaceous plants use Gro-Sure Ericaceous Plant Food that is tailored to provide a high-quality diet for these specialist plants. Often the soil they are growing in is alkaline, so it is important to acidify their root zone and supply them with an easily assimilated fertiliser. Use Gro-Sure Ericaceous Plant Food, it has a low pH which helps to unlock essential nutrients from the soil, and it also contains iron that alleviates plant chlorosis (yellowing leaves) and helps provide these special plants with just the right diet to suit their needs and perform to their full potential.
Targetted Plant Feeds
For more targeted feeding for other garden plants choose a plant food specially formulated for your plants from the extensive Westland Garden Health range. For example Westland Rose Food is specially formulated for roses and shrubs and is a particularly good choice for flowering shrubs. Use this for a summer feed to boost the plants before autumn. Be sure not to feed the plants too late in the season or you will encourage soft and sappy growth that may be damaged by the winter weather.
Flowerbeds and borders can be fed using Gro-Sure All Purpose Plant Food. It is a liquid concentrate that can be diluted and watered onto the soil around your plants for fast acting results. It’s the perfect choice for all garden plants and it gives fast, effective results. This formulation contains trace elements, which are important where mineral deficiencies in the soil or compost may be present. It is also high in potassium to encourage the development of strong, healthy flowers and has a generous proportion of nitrogen too, for healthy leaves.
For a natural feed for healthy yield of tomatoes and other crops try Gro-Sure Super Enriched Tomato Food.
Remember to keep feeding your container plants throughout the summer. They need plenty of food to keep them in tip-top condition. Several plants growing in a container will quickly use up the fertiliser held in the compost. While your plants are at their peak and to keep them performing into the early autumn, feed them now with one of the Westland fertilisers. Gro-Sure All Purpose Plant Food is the perfect choice for containerised plants as it gives fast, effective results. This formulation contains trace elements, which are important where mineral deficiencies in the soil or compost may be present. It is also high in potassium to encourage the development of strong, healthy flowers and has a generous proportion of nitrogen too, for healthy leaves.
