Autumn Lawn Feed

Posted: 13/11/2014 at 12:33

It simply adjusts the balance of nutrients ...basically less nitrogen.  What other plant is specially fed during the winter ?  A waste of money best spent on some extra plants?

I would be cautious.  How solid are these purpose built flats Nursie?  Figs are vigorous and can get pretty big

Autumn feed is a different sort of lawn feed though MrsG.....it can't replace a spring or summer feed.

To late to plant foxgloves?

They are vigorous plants CharleyBot.  Pots are really to hold them over winter.  One of the few plants I would check roots at this time and if If really  vigorous I would pot on now.  I have a few white ones now that may need potting on as they are still making plenty of growth

So you got worms and a tablet for them Bitterknitter

remind me please

Shirley,,just let them tick over now.  I would remove flowers. Would water only sparingly.  The idea is not to encourage growth over the winter now.  Pot on in spring before planting out.

Does anyone know what this plant is?

Welcome to the forum NikB

not easy to see your plant but not a choisya.  Could be a pieris.  Can you post another picture? Have you tested,your soil?  Is it acidic?  Pieris will not grow on alkaline soils

Used to apply autumn lawn feed but now I don't.  Not convinced it is necessary 

So fed up with all this rain!!!!
