Fertilizers are powerful tools which can greatly help your garden. However, if they are applied incorrectly, they can do a lot of harm not only to your plants, but also to the environment. Therefore, it is very important to know just when to apply it and how much quantity can be safe.
At any rate, regular fertilization of your vegetable garden ensures that your plants will grow strong and healthy. Of course, the frequency of compost for plants may depend on the exact type of soil that your garden has. Thus, veggies which grow in a porous, properly-drained kind of soil need to be fed on a regular basis. All throughout the growing season, you can fertilize your garden every three or four weeks. At the same time, you do not need to stop applying fertilizers once your garden has started to yield. On the contrary, if you keep on using fertilizers, you can thus ensure your garden’s continuity of production.
We should also mention the fact that vegetables which grow in clay soils may need less fertilization. The best idea is to use a soil test and thus find out exactly which type of fertilizer is most recommended for your garden: animal manure, dry fertilizers, water-soluble fertilizers, etc.
