Not the veggies, but trees, annuals, etc.
The key to knowing when to fertilize your plants and/or garden is at least understanding the growing cycle of plants.First the plant goes through a growth stage. It starts as a seed or cutting and begins to grow. As it grows it transitions through to the fruiting stage where it produces something: either fruit, a flower or a seed pod. At the end of the fruiting stage it either dies (as in the case of annuals) or it goes into the dormant stage. That's basically it. Each stage has its own requirements and they need certain chemical elements to aid their particular phase. So that ways each plant has its own needs which you must take care
Nitrogen and phosphorous at the start of spring (it's growth stage). Potassium in summer for resiliency - not for seed production. More phosphorous in autumn and winter in the form of a slow-release fertilizer. This much would be more than enough.
The best time to fertilize your plants is during the peak pest seasons between the months of May to around mid July. Depending on the species of flora, you may need to apply at certain times of the day too. Large flowering plants such as the rose need to be fertilized around mid day because if you apply it at night, mildew will form. Spices such as dill, rosemary, and thyme should be fertilized with organic fertilizers such as feces during the early morning sunshine.1909 days ago
That depends on the type of Fertilizer you are using and the climate where you live. Typically early Spring, before new growth starts is an ideal time. However, alot of places, especially in the southeastern United States, Fall can also be an ideal time. One of the most important things to look for is soil temperatures. You want them to be moderate, like you generally find in Spring and Fall, and when moisture is present in the soil. Root growth and development which ultimately leads to top growth takes place when soil temperatures are moderate; not hot and not cold.1922 days ago
Healthy trees usually do not need fertilizer; however, its use can improve appearance, growth and vigor. Fertilizer is used to help trees resist or recover from stress caused by adverse weather , chemical injury, physical damage to roots, stems or branches and attacks by pest. Apply nitrogen in late winter or early spring. Late season release of nitrogen can make plants more susceptible to cold injury. Additional applications may be needed on sandy soils after heavy rains or irrigatiorganisms.1922 days ago
