Fertilizing

Regularly fertilizing a soil that has been enriched with compost is not required for most plants, as they will obtain the nutrients they need. Your garden may benefit from one to two applications of a balanced fertilizer in early spring and again in early summer. Overfertilizing can harm plants, while the right amount of fertilizer can encourage the growth of healthy plants and blooms in your flower garden.
