I've had lots of requests to introduce Flower Power in bigger pack and I'm delighted to do that with Today's Special Value. Here are some FAQs to help you get the most from Flower Power – I'm chuffed to bits with it and I hope you are too!
What makes Flower Power different to ordinary plant feeds?
Flower Power contains more potash than any other fertiliser I know. Potash is the key nutrient that encourages flowering and fruiting, as well as developing stronger plants.
As you’d expect, Flower Power is packed with all the other important nutrients including vital trace elements. It also includes seaweed extract for bio-stimulant growth and a wetting agent to help those special nutrients reach every root.
What can I use Flower Power on?
You can use Flower Power on anything that flowers or produces fruit – especially spring and summer flowering bedding plants. Here's a list:
- Spring annuals: pansies, primroses, fuchsias, petunias, geraniums, begonias, roses, clematis and flowering shrubs.
- Summer annuals: sweet peas, hardy perennials like peonies, chrysanthemums and lilies.
- Houseplants: orchids (in particular).
- Fruit and vegetables: strawberries, all soft fruit, apples, pears, peppers, runner beans and courgettes.
If you love growing tomatoes, an independent trial by Dr Arnie Rainbow showed Flower Power produced over double the crop of tomatoes compared with the brand leading fertilizer – to see the results watch my video clip.
How does Flower Power affect the flavour of fruit and vegetables?
The high level of potash in Flower Power actually helps improve the flavour. So you get the best of both worlds – better tasting crops and more of them too!
What are there any other benefits of using Flower Power?
The high potash content in Flower Power also helps:
- Increase hardiness (tolerance of frost and wind)
- Increase resistance to pests and diseases
- Improve foliage colour
How do I use Flower Power?
Simply add 5g (or one measuring scoop, which is supplied with the feed) to one gallon of water and stir well.
How much diluted feed does Flower Power make?
The super concentrated formula goes a long way. The 1.5kg pack makes 300 gallons of diluted feed, which should be enough to last a keen gardener all spring and summer. For gardeners with fewer plants, it could last until next year.
How often should I use Flower Power?
Feed established plants once a week from March to May. Feed your plants twice a week from June to September. For top yields with greenhouse tomatoes, feed them three times a week after the first truss has set.
Can I keep Flower Power over winter?
Yes, simply keep it in a cool, dry place in the tub, with the lid of the tub firmly in place.
How did Flower Power start out?
For years, I’d recommended using liquid tomato food to boost flowering and fruiting plants. But I knew that professional gardeners used something better and I decided to develop my own version of the professional feeds.
I worked with Dr Arnie Rainbow, one of the UK’s top garden scientists, and trialled it in my own garden. Once I was happy with it, I launched it on QVC and I’m delighted that my special plant feed is now one of the top-selling lines, and is tried, tested and trusted by tens of thousands of gardeners.
