Q What’s a high nitrogen fertiliser?
Marie Mallison, Hull
A A readily available form of nitrogen for plants is ammonium sulphate from garden centres and DIY superstores. Liquid feeds based on nettles have a small amount, but only a fraction of that of ammonium sulphate. Dried blood would be the best option.

Use dried blood as a top dressing to give leafy plants a boost
