There is usually a lot to do in May. Because once the Ice Saints have gone by in the middle of the month, you can start planting up your window boxes and pots. A suitable soil is a peat-free soil, specially designed to meet the needs of balcony and patio plants. Even with pre-fertilised soil, it is still necessary to fertilise again after around four weeks. Lightly work the Organic Flowering Plant Food into the substrate surface. This gives the plants the right nourishment for a season full of beautiful flowers.
You can also feed your balcony plants with an organic fertiliser, the Organic Multipurpose Plant Feed. This not only gives your plants all the key primary nutrients, it also contains a variety of trace elements, growth substances and enzymes. This ensures lush growth and bigger blooms.
Wintering plants can also go outdoors now. But be careful! Slowly get them acclimatised to the sun. The sun could quickly burn them otherwise. First, place them in a shade spot. Replant patio plants into fresh soil in the spring. Then feed them with Organic Multipurpose Plant Feed or any other special fertiliser by Neudorff.
Herbs on the balcony and terrace also need a regular supply of nutrients. This is easily done by regularly adding an organic fertiliser specially designed to meet the needs of herbs to the watering can.
Now is the time to feed your boxwoods in tubs with Organic Multipurpose Plant Food. This supplies the plant with all the necessary nutrients over a long period of time. Boxwoods that are regularly fed and watered are significantly less prone to dying. The best time to prune boxwood is after the first buds have sprouted or if infested with the boxwood psyllid.
Roses also look good planted in containers. Now you can plant low-growing varieties in a peat-free soil specially designed to meet the needs of roses in appropriate containers. Select a pot that is particularly high (roses produced deep roots) to allow the rose optimum growth. For optimal root growth and an adequate supply of nutrients add Mycorrhiza Root Enlarger.
Roses in containers need to be fed with Organic Rose Feed in April/May and August.
