When planting, always give your new plant a head start by using ferti-lome Root Stimulator. Mix 3½ Tbs per gallon of water. Dig the hole, pour some of the mix in the hole, as it is absorbing into the soil, put the root ball in, to absorb some of the mix. Backfill the hole and pour some more around the top. Then reapply at least 3 times 10 to 14 days apart.
When planting anything, ferti-lome Root Stimulator is the most important step.
Annual Flowers can be heavy fertilizer feeders. In order to get the most out of your plants you need to feed them often, with the nutrients they need to get the results you want.
The idea of annual flowers is to grow that plant to death, you want the largest plants possible, with the most blossoms possible.
In order to accomplish this and to get the most vibrant blossoms possible, two fertilizers are required; ferti-lome Blooming & Rooting and ferti-lome 20-20-20 Water Soluble Plant Food.
– Blooming & Rooting is a 9-58-8 plant food that you simply mix with water and apply when watering. With this much Phosphorous, it takes over where the Root Stimulator left off, continuing root growth, increasing drought tolerance. It will also stimulate a ton of blossoms. It can make a rock bloom!
– The ferti-lome 20-20-20 Water Soluble Plant Food is again used when watering. This is a balanced formula that supplies all the nutrients the plant wants and needs. It will help keep the plants healthy; leaves will remain a darker green, the plants will be more disease and insect resistant. They will also be able to maintain the heavy blossom load.
Alternate between these two products every time you fertilize. It is recommended to fertilize with a water-soluble plant food every 3 to 7 days. Just add to your water when you are watering.
