Cambridgeshire, United Kingdom
With spring on the way, I have been wondering about feeding/mulching my plants. First question concerns the area to cover - is there any point in concentrating close to the plant stem when the roots may extend three feet away - does anyone have a diameter in mind that should be covered? Second question concerns the time of application - when would be a good time to start? Lastly should granular feeds be left on the surface or covered by soil/compost?
I hope this is not cheating by asking three questions in one, but since they are related it seemed better than asking three separate questions.
I look forward to having the opinions of those more knowledgeable than myself.
