In­door plants

Sunday Tasmanian - Tassie Living - - GARDENING -

Feed­ing plants in the gar­den dur­ing win­ter can be a bit of a waste of time due to the fact that it’s cold and the process of tak­ing up nu­tri­ents is slowed, but this is not the case for those plants that live in­side. I col­lect all our in­door plants into the laun­dry or an out­door cov­ered area and wa­ter with half-strength sea­weed and fish emul­sion. The rea­son for this re­lo­ca­tion of plants is al­though th­ese fer­tilis­ers are good not only as a quick food hit for the plants, they are also no­to­ri­ously aro­matic and it usu­ally takes a cou­ple of hours for that wafti­ness to dis­perse. It is also a good op­por­tu­nity to tidy up the plant and top the mix in the pots up.
