Plants that’ll need a feed


At this time of year it can be really beneficial to give a liquid feed to those plants that won’t be ready for another few weeks as the soil will be fairly depleted of nutrients, especially if you’re growing in pots and containers where there’s no easy way for them to draw in fresh nutrients naturally. Don’t forget that shop bought compost will usually only retain nutrients for 4 weeks

The ones that spring to mind are:

  • Squashes and Pumpkins
  • Celeriac
  • Tomatoes, peppers, chillies and aubergines that are still in the flowering/fruiting stage
  • Sweetcorn
