Look­ing af­ter con­tain­ers

Amateur Gardening - - Contents -

CON­TAIN­ERS and grow bags have a lot of plants in a small area of com­post and it doesn’t take long for the nu­tri­ents to be de­pleted.

Even though con­tainer com­post is de­signed to feed plants for sev­eral months, they will need a nu­tri­tional top-up af­ter the first few weeks.

You can slip a plug of slow-re­lease gran­ules such as Os­mo­cote into the com­post at plant­ing or add a liq­uid tomato food to your wa­ter­ing rit­ual once week to keep plants strong.

Use high potas­sium feed for con­tain­ers
