I've used phostrogen for a long time for pots. I found it good value and easy to use. Just a teaspoon in a watering can full of water.

We've still not had a comment on whether Natalie thinks that the third rozanne plug sent to me  was  of merchantable quality. Although with a lot of TLC it has grown another leaf. Not dead yet. (Not likely to flower this year either)
