Plants commiting suicide, is it blood fish and bone?
First post, this looks like a great forum!
This year I was having some success with bedding plants, and got some sunflowers starting off early for the kids school stuff, to try to get them really big.
Managed to plant everything out in the decent weather, and they all started along really well.
Some of the soil was old, so I thought I'd fertilise it.
I put some Blood FIsh and bone around the plants and the sunflowers, and those particular plants, the sunflowers, pansies, and lobellia all died within about 2 days of puttign it around them. The sunflower and hanging baskets that I didn't use the BFB on are still doing well.
It's pretty obvious that this is my fault with the BFB, but why did it happen? I'm really annoyed to have killed heathy plants!
