Using a general purpose fertiliser in a garden in Feb: Good idea? Recommended brand?
Hi all, I read the following advice on a gardening website:
"Towards the end of (February), you can top dress beds and borders with a balanced fertiliser such as Growmore or blood, fish and bone, to feed perennials as they start back into growth."
Does that mean a one-off top-dressing of the whole garden, or do I continuously top dress from feb onwards (eg every two weeks or something)?
Also, is it better to sprinkle the fertiliser on dry, or dilute it in water and then water the beds?
I see there are various brands of growmore fertiliser, eg westland/vitax/elixir. Is there a brand you would recommend?
Also is there any danger in over-fertilising a garden?
