The Q&A Archives: fertilizer

Question: For my butterfly plant; Do I just give it normal plant food?

Answer: Unfortunately I am not certain if you mean the shrub called butterfly bush (Buddleia) or perennial called butterfly weed (Asclepias) or something else entirely. In general, you could use a general purpose fertilizer such as 10-10-10 annually in the spring. A slow release fertilizer or a general purpose granular would be fine. Read and follow the label directions for how much to use. I hope this answers your question.
