How To Fertilize Your Vegetable Garden
Fertilizer is an important part of a container garden but you really need to know what kind of fertilizer.
You have to be careful not to use multiple fertilizers and give to much to the plant as this can be damaging. This is easy to do when you are growing in a small pot. It can be a good idea to simply use one of the sticks that you put in the soil and let it grow.
Always make sure you read the directions ofr the fertilizers you’re using in your garden. In most cases, they will say how often they should be applied.
There are 3 components to fertilizer: nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium. It is important to look up the appropriate mixture ofr your type of plant that you are growing in your containers.
Making sure you have the right fertilizer can be critical to getting the best results with your containers. But it can be just as important to get the best soil ofr the project. You can get soil with all the fertilizer you need in your soil. So you can just go with the soil alone in some cases at least ofr the first season. This can make it easier to start so that you do not have to spend a lot of time learning about the different product out there ofr your plants. It an be confusing so check the label on the soil and start there.
If you want to work organically in your garden then you can look ofr soil that is organic or use soil that includes nothing ofr fertilizer and go with another organic fertilizer.
