What month should I start feeding my garden?

The timing of when to start feeding your garden depends on a variety of factors, including the type of plants you are growing, the climate in which you live, and the type of fertilizers you are using. Here are some general guidelines for when to start feeding your garden:

  1. Spring: As the weather warms up in the spring, your plants will begin to emerge from dormancy and will start to grow actively. This is typically the time when you should start feeding your garden. Use a balanced fertilize, such as a 10-10-10 or 20-20-20 formula, to provide your plants with the nutrients they need to grow and thrive.
  2. Summer: As your plants continue to grow and produce flowers and fruits, they will continue to need nutrients. Fertilize your garden every four to six weeks during the summer to ensure that your plants are getting the nutrients they need.
  3. Fall: As the weather cools down in the fall, your plants will start to go dormant and will need fewer nutrients. Reduce the frequency of fertilizing to every six to eight weeks during the fall.
  4. Winter: Most plants are dormant during the winter and do not need to be fertilized. If you live in a climate with mild winters and have plants that are still actively growing, you may need to fertilize them occasionally.

It’s important to note that each plant has specific fertilizing needs and requirements. Be sure to follow the recommended fertilizing guidelines for the specific plants you are growing and use fertilizers that are appropriate for the stage of growth your plants are in. With proper fertilization, you can help ensure that your garden is healthy and productive.
