When to fertilize potted plants in containers

If you have many potted plants in your container garden, it makes sense to fertilize them regularly to keep them in the best health. But when should you fertilize them? Many new gardeners make the mistake of either not fertilizing enough or fertilizing far to often. So what is the right schedule to fertilize your container garden?

You should fertilize one every week or two. You should also take care not to fertilize during a heat wave, because the added fertilization can cause plants stress and actually make them unhealthy.

There are many types of fertilizer. For container gardening, the easiest to use is the standard "plant food" that you mix with water then use a watering can to fertilize. When you fertilize using his method, be sure to water the potting soil, not the leaves as well.
