Is it too early to start fertilizing my house plants? I have a lot of succulents, violets, a peace lily, philodendrons, etc.

I am especially concerned re my violets.

Thank you,

Sharie

Houseplants can be fertilized from March through October so now's the time to begin feeding yours. Their growth usually slows when days are short - November through February - but they resume growing during the longer, brighter days of spring. I use a half-strength dilution of liquid fertilizer and feed my houseplants every 2-3 weeks from spring through fall. Best wishes with your houseplants!
