Gorgeous! ! Hi @mrsflowerpot..sorry to crash your post but I wasn't sure if there's a way to message people or...?? Anywho, just hoped you could advise me on what I could feed my flowerbeds with please?? Last year we only had baskets and I used miracle grow liquid to amazing effect. This year on my beds I do have some of those slow release fertiliser 'beads' to sprinkle on but im not convinced I'm getting the flower output I could be?? What do you use please? ! Thanks! X

Hi @ktcooki276 I always mulch my flowerbeds with a thick layer of organic compost in late February/early March. This helps keep weeds down and nurishes the plants. Then during the growing season use either diluted liquid seaweed feed or tomato feed for your plants to give them a boost. I try not to used chemical based feeds too aften as the natural stuff is just as good and is less harmful to the environment. 👍🌟👍
