The Q&A Archives: fertilization

Question: If I re-pot my plants using soil with a 3 month release of plant food,do I still need to fertilize? And if so, when?

Answer: When the soil includes a slow release fertilizer you should not need to fertilize until after about three months. The exception would be if your plants begin to look like they need to be fed, then you could start earlier with a water soluble fertilizer.
