I am a reckless fertilizer, even when I write it down on the calendar I still forget to do it. I came to the conclusion I was hurting my plants more than helping. So, the last two years....no fertilizer at all. Oddly my plants seem happy without it!

I try to do it on Monday mornings in the summer. New week, time to feed the plants. The brugs, however, get it more times. In an ideal world it would be every other day. Big Grin

My plants are on their own, and, so far, for the most part, they are doing OK. Not because I have a problem with fertilizers, I've bought some in the past, always forget to feed it, I'll mix it up once, and after that it sits on the garage shelf forever. So, I decided to save the money to buy more plants instead.
