My Flower Power FAQs


Flower Power and tomatoes Hello everyone,

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.

    Hi Richard
    Just bought your flower power in the sachet before it came out as a TSV! Never mind!
    It’s my first year with my own veg plot and I was just wondering if there was anything that I shouldn’t use flower power on?

    Hi there
    I purchased a hydrohose a few years ago and it has been really useful, however I now need to purchase some spare parts for it and don’t know where to get them from.Namely I need the piece of hose with connections that connects it the tap and also an extension kit if there is one. Can you help. Thanks Elaine.

    I have watched all the demonstrations and I am still not clear if this is a foliage feed which you water over the plant or do you pour directly onto the base of the plant? If so what dosage per plant?
    I buy substantial amount of plants and product from QVC and I am delighted with the quality

    Richard Jackson’s Flower Power 750g Premium Plant Food
    (Apologies if this is you have received this already)
    Great product – it does what it says on the packet and your programs! However my garden is quite large for only a 10 litre watering can – what is the measure for a distributor (like Miraclgrow or Phostregen) please?
    Thanks, Gordon McPherson

    Hi Richard,
    can you please advise as to whether Flower power is suitable for blueberries. When you read the Q&A’s on the product pages lots of them say it isn’t as it have calcium in I, so now I am confused!
