Fertilizer Tips & Tricks That Work For Me.

With a 3 to 3 1/2 month growing season here in northern Minnesota, I have to help my blooms with a little fertilizer. This is what has worked consistently for me.
  • 1. Planting: When planting new annuals and perennials, put a scoop full of timed release fertilizer into each planting hole.
  • 2. Container Gardens: Use 1/2 scoop of fertilizer to two gallons of water for container gardens every time you water. Remember it most of the water you pour in runs through.
  • 3. Garden Beds: Water down your flower beds before fertilizer (better yet fertilize after a rain)
  • Mix one scoop full of fertilizer to two gallons of water.
  • Now water each annual individually. Since the bed was already watered, just pour a small amount directly at the base of each plant.
  • I fertilize my garden beds like this every week, and for me these tips work!

    My dogs, especially my beagle, love organic fertilizers . they will dig up any fertilized that way. I swear by Osmocote. Plants don't care where that N2 ion comes from.
