If you've been reading my blog for long, you know that I have somewhat of a black thumb. Yes, I can even manage to kill zucchini plants. And my house plants always look pathetic. I need all the help I can get in the gardening department. So when I got the chance to try out some Whitney Farms® organic plant food, I was thrilled. (So were my plants.)
I will be using the vegetable variety as soon as the weather cooperates and we can plant tomatoes. But for today I am trying out the all purpose variety on my sickly house plants in hopes of giving them a boost.
Whitney Farms has been in the gardening business for over 25 years, so they know a little about growing plants (unlike myself). They have a full line of 100% natural plant foods and organic soil with no additives, nothing artificial, just ingredients from the Earth. As a bonus, they have little or no dust, no stinky manure smell (hooray!), and are very easy to apply.
My sad little houseplants are just screaming for some nourishment.
Here is specimen #1. Don't laugh, I know it looks like a hot mess.
And specimen #2. Not quite as bad, but still nothing to brag about.
After following the instructions on the bag, I sprinkled a couple of tablespoons of plant food on the soil around my plants, then gave them a good watering.
That's it! I love it that the plant food doesn't need to be mixed with water first! I need things to be quick and easy in the plant department.
I am excited to try the organic fruit and vegetable food in my garden because I know it is so much healthier for my family than conventional fertilizers.
