Applying Dr. Earth Fertilizer
Alright let’s feed this container plant. As you can see it’s a little tired looking and hasn’t been fed in a long time. This is going to greatly benefit from using Organic seven. It’s an all-purpose fertilizer that is going to address all of its nutrient requirements. So again it’s a five gallon container. We want to give it approximately 1/2 a cup of fertilizer. Here’s a half a cup you take the fertilizer
simply apply it to the soil surface with your fingers on a cultivator slightly scratch it in.
The soil level is kind of low so this is going to greatly benefit from additional new soil. Dr. Earth potting soil is perfect for this application. You simply apply another Oh inch inch-and-a-half is a good ratio. Pack it in just a little bit and if you get a little messy that’s fine you’re gonna water it in.
So take your watering wand and just simply water it in evenly. And the showering wand if you heard me say a thousand times is your best friend because it’s gonna blend the fertilizer and the soil together. Now you wait about five minutes. Make sure that the container is thoroughly moist then come back and then water it down again. This will ensure that the fertilizer and that the soil have been blended together thoroughly.
This container spread you don’t have to deal with it for another two months.
