The Q&A Archives: fertilizer spikes

Question: do I use 3 month fertilizer spikes every 3 months? I know that sounds dumb. but really so I refertilize every 3 months. or just in spring and again in fall?

Answer: Rhonda,

That is kinda up to you and depends on the plant you are fertilizing, ie. how often it needs to be fed. With plants that are dormant in winter an early spring and early summer feeding is sufficient. Houseplants and evergreens can be given the spikes in early spring, early summer and early fall.

Thanks for the question. Please stop in again soon!
