I love flowers and can't wait to retire to a warmer climate so I can have flowers in my garden all year round. Whether it's annuals or perennials we depend on one fertilizer for all of them.
Peters Professional Super Blossom Booster Plant Food, 10-50-10, is water soluble and is recommended for all flowering plants and roses.
We purchase the 5 lb. box which contains 4 handy feeder packs. Each packet covers 500 sq.ft. and can be divided for smaller areas. We mix 1 tablespoon of the fertilizer to one gallon of water in our watering can and do this several times but find it works best for us that way.
Peters Super Blossom Booster is the best for creating compact blooms without getting the stringy ends The flowers are so beautiful we usually get people walking by who stop and ask us who has the green thumb. I have no problem pulling out the box of Peter's fertilizer and telling them that is the only thing we use on our flowers.
We normally fertilize every 7 - 10 days in the early morning before the hot sun comes out. When we plant new flowers in the spring and summer they get a healthy dose of Peters to get them on their way. Using this fertilizer in the fall before the first frost is great for the perennials and also for fall bulbs that we plant.
We wouldn't think of using any other fertilizer and recommend this to anyone that loves a flower garden, you won't be disappointed.
