Fertilizing herbs

Organic fertilizer is excellent for fertilizing herbs, just keep in mind that herbs belong to the third track. Even those herbs at the top of the list that require higher soil nutrition do not fertilize often. A 1.3L package of FERTILIZER is enough for 200L watering, so one such package will cover several seasons of your cultivation.

Table briefly showing the need and frequency of herb fertilization.

2. Application of fertilizer to herbs

Apply watering to herbs and houseplants. Either for more plants when you pour 5 ml of fertilizer per 1L of water into a container. Let stand for 30 minutes – 4 hours and apply with watering. Or when fertilizing one plant, put a pinch in a bowl of water and apply in the same way. The lye will reach the roots faster and the fertilizer balls will gradually decompose on the soil and release nutrients in the next about 2 weeks before they decompose.

Chive

fertilize twice a month

Fertilization of growing chives outside is suitable in autumn, when we can sprinkle organic fertilizer or compost and mulch around the tufts (thermal protection). During the winter and spring it will intensify and form large tufts with dark green leaves. More frequent fertilization of chives is not necessary.

Indoor chives, on the other hand, need to be fertilized more often, but always with a high-quality organic fertilizer that dissolves best in water (see our insect tea or watering). Nitrogen in organic fertilizer will not bother us when consumed, but if you use mineral fertilizers you can hurt yourself.

Thyme

fertilize max 1x per year

Thyme is not a plant that is hungry after fertilization. Thyme does not tolerate direct fertilization even with organic fertilizer. It is beneficial to fertilize it once a year and avoid fertilizers too rich in nitrogen so that growth is not at the expense of the content of aromatic substances. Lightly fertilize with our manure.
