How to mix

For new plants: Mix plant food into soil around root ball.

For established plants: Carefully work plant food in the soil around the plant. Avoid piling plant food against the stem or trunk.

Tips

Containers: When choosing a container, pick one that has a drainage hole. Find a clear or matching saucer to catch any excess water.

For success: Regular feeding promotes big, strong plants with colorful blooms and bountiful harvests.

Don’t overfeed. Overfeeding can be as harmful as underfeeding. Feeding too much can cause weak growth to become susceptible to pests and diseases. Different plants have different plant food needs – find out what your plant prefers and keep a regular schedule.
