Can anyone recommend a good fertiliser please.
Vitax Q4 is good hoed in around the border. I done this at the tail end of last year and my Primulas are the first to have mounds of flowers since.

Thank you Treesand thi.:) is to late to put down now.
I would put some down now and again in autumn.
Thank you very much for your advice.:)
I use chicken manure fertiliser - it's sold in sacks labelled 6X. Pongs a bit (especially when wet) but is strong stuff and you only need to scatter a handful and gently fork it in. I have a big garden and use no more than 3 sacks for the whole lot. It can be difficult to find a supplier but my Notcutts Garden Centre sell it
Blood, fish and bone is also good.
Yes looking for an all rounder to put into borders I work in.

as spritz says, fish bone and blood is good and organic , we use it all round the garden.................steve
You can also lightly dig in compost or composted bark
Be careful with fish bone and blood if you have a dog. Its like providing a "dig it yourself" picnic !
I use a Multi Purpose Flower Feed In Pellet form for its slow release of Nutrients. I Hoe It into Soil around Flowers/Plants In March & Again In June this gives the Plants/Flowers Energy for the Flowering/Growing Seasons :)
Thank you Jacque and Alif enjoy your weekend.
LOL - Henry discovered it, and kept licking it up! UGH. I have trained him to keep off the flowerbeds, but I have to hoe it in as well, as it is like a magnet to him! This seems to work.
How do I say thanks?
