Liquid fertilizers are easy to pour and spread on the soil. Dilute the fertilizer as per the instructions given on the packaging and then pour it on the soil. Make sure you do not apply it to a completely dry soil because doing so can scorch your plant’s roots.

Ensure to water the soil with clean water. Allow it to drain away and then apply the liquid fertilizer. If you intend to apply it to plants in pots, fill the pot with the fertilizer to its rim. If you are adding it to the soil, pour it generously on the soil and around the plants. Pour it until the topsoil saturates with it.

A drawback of liquid fertilizers is that they are not effective for long periods because they quickly leach right into the subsoil. However, they provide an instant supply of nutrients to the soil and plants, which makes them a useful form of fertilizer.
