Foliar Feeding

This approach involves spraying the fertilizer on the plant’s leaves. Foliar feeding is a short lived, but fast acting method that leads to quick remedial action when the plant becomes deficient in certain nutrients. In this method, you spray liquid seaweed on the leaves of a plant when the plant is experiencing a deficiency of trace elements. However, you need to supplement it with a good seaweed meal fertilizer too.

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.

You can use Granular fertilizers to provide the usual nutrients to a plant; these fertilizers work as a supplement to manure and compost. When using these fertilizers, you normally apply them to the soil in the spring season, or a little before planting the crops.
