Fertilizing with the 5:1:1 or Gritty Mix
Al's mixes are new to me so I am not used to having to supply fertilizers as much as this will need.
What is the frequency needed on average and I understand every plant has different needs, but is there a general rule of thumb that would work for a majority of plants in containers?
Also what types of fertilizers can one use without having to buy synthetic or pre-packaged organics that are expensive?
I did alter the 5:1:1 mix in substituting the Peat portion with a Peat/Compost 50/50 mix since I make compost I would hate the idea of my plants not getting ANY nutrients from the mixes. So far the peppers and tomatoes haven't died so that's good.
