After planting your Seedsheet, it's only a matter of days before the green seedlings peek out of the soil, green and ready to grow! When gardens look great from the get-go, it's hard to believe that anything could stand in the way of lush leaves, beautiful flowers and ripe fruit. To grow the healthiest plants in a container garden or backyard raised bed, starting with nutrient-dense soil is the essential first step.
After the crops start developing "true leaves", adding organic fertilizer every week to boost the health of your plants is the best way to keep the leaves healthy and encourage good fruit production. Organic fertilizer is like a superfood smoothie for your plants. This addition of extra minerals and nutrients will in turn increase the health benefits of your homegrown-harvests.
When plants don't have enough nutrients, the leaves may turn yellow. This is their way of letting you know they need a little boost!
If you've never fertilized your garden before, don't worry, it's easy and we're here to help. Check out the tips below for fool-proof fertilizing to harvest your biggest bounty yet.
