Feeding Flowers: July Garden Tip

Leave a comment

It’s hot!  Midsummer is the time for feeding your plant babies in bloom.  A light feeding when plants are blooming is a little friendly encouragement to promote more flower production, as long as you aren’t using an overly nitrogen-rich fertilizer.  Consider a gentle side-dressing or spray of fish emulsion for flower medicines such as calendula, tulsi, chamomile, lavender, bee balm, & more!

Also, be sure to dead-head spent blooms to keep flower medicines coming!  Arnica, calendula, rose, echinacea, and most of our other flowers will rebloom if dead-headed regularly.
