The Q&A Archives: Fertilizing

Question: Do I continue to fertilize with a time release product in the winter?. I have a patio garden.

Answer: Time release fertilizers are nice in that they keep a continual supply of needed nutrients available to plant roots. However, plants should only be fertilized when they're actively growing. I would withhold fertilizer until spring when plant growth resumes.
