DAVID: They usu­ally ben­e­fit from a once-weekly feed with a high-po­tash, low-ni­tro­gen fer­tiliser. This helps to feed and pro­long blooms with­out en­cour­ag­ing too much bushy leaf and stem growth. Feed plants through­out the grow­ing sea­son. Make sure they are well hy­drated first – if soil is dry, it can burn roots and hinder wa­ter and nu­tri­ent up­take.
