Here are some of our most frequently asked questions when it comes to our fertilising and soil improvement services in Perth. If you don’t see what you need – just get in touch with our friendly team!
How often should I fertilise my plants?
When it comes to fertilising it really depends on the product that you’re using, some are slow-release fertilisers which mean that they will release the nutrients over time and some, such as liquid fertilisers, are “instant”. It is important to read the manufacturer’s instructions carefully and always apply safely with the appropriate protective gear. In sandy soils we recommend to use less than the recommended dose but a little more often. Too much fertiliser can burn your plants but can also cause serious environmental risks by leaching and polluting the water ways. We also recommend working to improve your soil quality itself with soil improvers and mulch to actually regenerate the soil, rather than relying 100% on fertilisers giving plants the occasional boost.
Do my native plants need a special fertiliser?
Can you take care of my fertilising all year?
Of course. All our garden maintenance packages include the application of general fertilisers and wetting agents, and if your garden needs something plant or season-specific, our expert landscape gardeners will advise you on what to apply and provide a quote to take care of it for you. We can help with both lawns and gardens, and will make sure that your garden has what it needs to stay healthy and vibrant in every season.
What is the best fertiliser for gardens?
There is no real blanket rule, as every garden will have different plants, soil and needs, but we try to use organic fertilisers whenever possible to reduce the chemicals in your garden and from running off into our water systems. There are a few all-purpose, general types out there, so if you are unsure, find an organic option from a reputable brand and apply as directed. Liquid seaweed fertiliser is a great option for general use – and can even be used on edible plants as well. We recommend consulting a professional gardener first. A tip – liquid fertiliser tends to work faster than granulated as it is absorbed more quickly by the plants, so if you really need to turn things around for your garden, find a liquid option.
When should I fertilise my garden?
First off – this often depends on what types of plants you have in your garden, what stage of growth they are at and your soil quality, so it’s always best to check with a qualified gardener first. However, early spring is a great time to apply a slow-release fertiliser to help give your plants a boost and kick-start their growth in the growing season. This works great for most trees and shrubs, but plants such as roses will need more than a one-off boost, so try to provide them with extra nutrients during spring and summer, around every 2-6 weeks. A key factor is also the quality of your soil. If it is typical sandy Perth soil ( most often nutrient-deficient) your garden may need more regular fertilising, along with soil improvement to assist in the longer-term to regenerate your soil itself. For lawns, a general rule is to fertilise in both spring and autumn, but again, consult with a landscape gardener first if possible.
