Plants Do Not Live by Love Alone!

Feed your plants and watch them grow

Unless you already have rich, fertile soil, your plants need extra food to grow their best. Regular additions of compost and other organics are terrific, but you will also want to use other fertilizers to stimulate growth and help the plant get off to a strong start.

We recommend using a fertilizer especially in the beginning when your plants need it most. You should religiously apply this in the first month according to the direction to establish your plants. Then you can continue with the Algoflash or use a slow release fertilizer to insure healthy growth. For fall planting, wait until next spring to fertilize and start a process all over again in the spring to ensure incredible success.
