Feeding Your Plants – How Much and What Fertilizer Should You Use?

Some gardeners have the best intentions for the growth and health of their plants, feeding-plants2but inadvertently over fertilize by thinking “if a little bit is good, more will be better.” Too much can be worse than not enough.

Other people forget to fertilize then overdo it with one big dose of plant food after months and months with none. Too much at one time can be worse than not fertilizing at all.

This applies to houseplants as well as in-ground trees, shrubs and flowers. If you think you have over- or under-fertilized your plants, come in to either of our stores to find out ways to deal with problems that may have occurred.
