Should I re-feed after heavy rain fall?

Asked 1 year 12 months ago by Tony.foley

Fed the plants with Miracle-Gro and then we had a long lasting downpour of rain. this was two days ago, we now have hot and sunny weather. Should I re-feed the plants after the downpour?

Will feeding during sunny day affect the plants?

When should you re-feed

It is best to not reapply and then feed again as per the on packet instructions, as over feeding could harm the plants.

If it rains heavily within 24 hours of feeding, should I repeat the feed or leave it for 2 weeks as per instructions on box?

Feeding

Posted 30 Jun 2015

Hello and thank you for your recent question about the best time to feed plants.

The best time to feed/water your plants is either first thing in the morning, before the sun is up or last thing at night, when the sun has gone down.

Feeding/watering plants that have direct sunlight on them, can cause the plant scorch damage.

Kind Regards

Amy
