The Q&A Archives: giant bird of paradise

Question: What type of fertilizer do I need to use for my giant bird of paradise?

Answer: Bird of Paradise generally does not need to be fed but if growth is slow or leaf color is off you can use a half strength dilution of water soluable food such as Miracle Gro or Peter's. Just use one tablespoon per gallon of water instead of the recommended two tablespoons. Feed in the spring, just as new growth begins.

Best wishes with your garden!
