Plant Feed and Fertilisers

Plant Feed and Fertilisers are powerful tools if you want your fruit, flowers and foliage to develop to their maximum potential. Several essential elements must be present in any growing medium, these are N, P, K (nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium together with magnesium, calcium and sulfur. In addition, several trace elements such as iron, zinc, copper, boron, manganese and molybdenum are also essential.

Especially if grown in containers your plants may lack a balanced blend of these nutrients and many will require specialist products to create optimum growing conditions. Tomatoes, citrus, roses and orchid all have individual requirements for healthy fruiting and growth, so whether you favour cultivating vegetables, fruit or flowers, success can never be guaranteed but plant fertilisers and feed will give you a much better chance of achieving impressive results.
