Horticultural grit near me

Horticultural grit near me

I've been using Fertilize For All the Plants in the Container in the past few weeks. So I know that I've been watering. I've been planting seeds, making cuttings, etc. The soil is getting better. In fact, a couple weeks ago, it was quite muddy. This has caused a bit of a problem for me.

I need to figure out how to water properly. What size grit should I buy? If I don't buy it, then how much should I be using for a container? I'm worried that I've been too aggressive with it. I'm just making it from scratch in my container.

I know how to water by the container. I haven't had to water since mid August.

It's very late April, I think.

What are your thoughts?

Thanks

I have no recommendations for fertilizers that contain nutrients for plants. All I can suggest is using a combination of composted leaf and other green material that is organic and as free as possible of pesticides and herbicides.

What sort of plants are you growing?

I can suggest no specific fertilizer. Fertilizers are often designed to do specific jobs and can be difficult to get the proportions right. I'll usually use soil and compost and a few organic based fertilizers. I am currently using a fertilizer designed for "sparsely planted areas" but don't know if I should apply that to my larger containers. We'll see how it goes.

I do know that fertilizer can be tricky and that I've gotten away with simply applying too little. If your plants are looking a little leggy or otherwise a little unwell, I'd probably start out with a high nitrogen or other fast growing plant fertilizer. I'd start with a very small amount on a small test area and work up as you grow. If they're looking healthy then start a bit smaller or use organic matter if you want to keep the cost down.

I don't have that problem much. My tomatoes need lots of fertilizer, but I just add the stuff from the store every week. The cucumbers, peppers, basil and a few of the herbs need to be fertilized with something specifically made for them. One of my tomato plants I keep up on and fertilize about every two weeks with an all organic fertilizer. The others I fertilize once a week and sometimes not at all. I don't get too concerned about the health of my plants unless they're looking bad. As I mentioned earlier, I usually feed whatever plants are in the ground early in the year and I stop once it starts to grow into a full sized plant, not too big, maybe 12 inches. Those plants get the rest of the time. But I'll be using the fertilizer again soon with the cukes anyway.

I know this topic has been covered a lot on here but we all need a lil push now and again. I'm just happy to know I can do it right and have been doing it for about 13 years. No need to fertilize unless you want to, it's very easy to do. All I did was put the fertilizer in the ground, spread it around, mulch it and watered when needed. I didn't use a garden rake because the ground here is too rocky and hard to move the pile of leaves, straw and sand out of the way.

My tomatoes are already doing well and my lettuce, basil, peppers and green beans are growing well. I did use my garden rake to turn over the bed at the end of September and early October before I mulched it up but I don't need to fertilize yet. My tomatoes need a little TLC. I'll use an all organic fertilizer at the start of May. But at the end of October I'll be back to using regular fertilizer.

I don't fertilize until April, after the new growth and before the leaves start to grow. This year I fertilized with a "salt-free" fertilizer. I haven't grown tomatoes long enough to have any results. Last year I started them in May and I think they produced more. I used it in late June as well. I use 1T per 4" row, in both rows.

At this point, I have the leaves starting to grow. A lot of you are still waiting, so you should be fine. This year, I have used a fertilizer called Garden Power. I will not fertilize the bed until April, but I will fertilize my corn. I use 1T per 8".

Yes, some of you are probably just waiting for your tomatoes to be ready so you can make your sauces and such. But remember, they don't need fertilizing until after they have leaves. I think the problem is that you don't know when to fertilize, because you don't know when to harvest your tomatoes.

It also helps if you are the type that doesn't let anything go to waste. You can compost your tomatoes, or freeze them. This year, I froze them. I don't care how many tomatoes I have, I just throw them into a big bucket, cover them with water, and freeze them. I have enough to make several batches of salsa and sauce.

A gardener has to remember they are the food source for the rest of us. I would encourage you to get some plants and then go to some of the forums and get some feed back from others. They will tell you when to fertilize. I will also say this, you can't expect to grow something and have it just show up. If you are not doing anything, just let it grow. It will take time.

Thanks for the input. I need to learn
