Fertilizing Plants in the Winter Months
As winter approaches, it’s important to know what plants need fertilizer and when to apply it. Certain plants, such as annuals, vegetables, and pansies, are actively growing during the winter months and require proper care. In this blog post, we will explore why it is important to fertilize these plants in the wintertime and which products are best for the job.
Why Fertilize in Winter?
It is essential to feed these winter plants with a quality fertilizer so they continue to grow and thrive despite the cold temperatures.
Without extra nutrients, these plants may start to look weak and pale or even stop growing entirely. Applying a fertilizer with a fungicide can also help protect against fungus growth due to potential excess water from rain or snow.
