Phostrogen Plant Food
Advantages: Easy to use
My wife has a tendency to kill plants. Her fingers are every colour other than green. Even when she is given gardening tips, she still manages to kill most things that come into her care.
Hardly surprising therefore that I took over the care of the plants inside and out a couple of years ago. I still let her do the weeding at the risk of her pulling up some of my plants.
I have managed to successfully root a number of cuttings in the time we have been here and once these plants have got to a decent size, I have used Phostrogen Plant Food on them to help them overcome the stress of being moved to bigger pots. I have also used it on many of the indoor plants to try to get them to a decent state and size.
For the most part, this has been successful. The feeding process is straightforward in that this plant food is a white powder which is soluble in water, so I just make up a supply in an indoor watering can and water as normal.
The pack size is 250g and this is enough to make approximately 500 litres of plant food at the recommended dilution. I do not feed this food to every plant at every watering - just from time to time when I judge they need a bit of a boost.
Although I have used this product for indoor plants only, it can also be used as a feed for roses, tomatoes, outdoor plants, vegetables, fruit trees, shrubs and trees as well as lawns.
For roses, tomatoes and the lawn I use separate feeds and the outdoor plants fare well enough without feeding.
This is a well-known product with an established reputation. It's hard to go wrong with this, provided you keep an eye on your plants, don't over feed and don't over water.
Summary: A handy helping hand if Mother Nature isn't doing her stuff
