Sound theory Mike - which is exactly why I recommended the use of the organic slow-release FB&B to feed the soil long-term after the planting problems have been remedied, rather than to dose it up with quick-acting nitrogen.
Farmers have learnt to their cost that applying heavy doses of nitrogen on crops results in soft lush growth which is frequently followed by mildew which they then have to spray with fungicide.
It works the same with garden plants.
Growing plants 'hard' makes them stronger and more resistant to disease.
