    Tip No. 2

    Tips for feeding your plants

    • Fertilizers mainly with N content should be avoided during these two dry summer months (May-June), specially when plant is already under stress & has no leaves to use them.
    • During Growing season ie. July-August a balanced diet of Nitrogen, Phosphorus and Potassium along with Magnesium is given to increase vibrancy of the plant and to encourage lots of growth to make the plant healthy.
    • During flowering season, stop giving Nitrogen in any form as encourages green growth at the cost of flowers & fruit. All the supplements should be stopped during flowering to avoid drop of flowers. Green growth means vegetative growth at the time when plant is in reproductive phase, so give a combination of Phosphorus and Potassium to stop fruit fall.
