He said: “To encourage good growth of any new plants and plant health specifically, we’d always recommend planting with root grow, and a fertiliser like bone meal as a basic helping hand.
“Once established, you can feed with a general all purpose feed like a seaweed based feed or opt for plant specific, e.g. for roses, or plants like Pieris and Camellia, which need a more acid-based soil environment to thrive.”
Watering plants is not as simple as it sounds.
It is important to give plants the right amount of water, as “too much or too little” can also cause “issues” with plants, says the gardening expert.
Jamie explained: “It’s important to know how much your particular plant needs and then monitor the soil moisture.
“This is particularly important during periods of either really wet or really dry weather, to ensure it’s as near perfect as possible.”
