Traditional methods of direct to the root fertiliser for demand feeders like Iris, Lotus, Tropical and Hardy water lilies have may options. When investigating products we settled on an aquatic tablet fertiliser specifically blended for pond plants. These tablets are manufactured by a company dedicated to producing fertilisers for water grown plants. When used as directed the fertiliser will stimulate vigorous growth, budding and flowering, disease resistance and are not toxic to aquatic animals including fish.
These Aquatic spikes are designed to provide your aquatic plants with all the required micro-nutrients for growth and flowering over a full season. The slow release formula offers an easy and effective way to fertilise for a season (6 - 9 months). Tablet fertilisers require a soil base to release nutrients into. Tablet fertilisers should not be introduced directly into your pond. Adding directly to the pond water may cause nutrient unbalance and algae, with possible ill health to pond life.
For best results apply Aquatic pellets in spring and during the growing season.Insert 2 pellets per 4 litres of aquatic soil or 2 pellets for every 30 - 35cm plant spread. Insert the pellets at least 5 - 7cm from the crown of the plant. Make sure the pellets are full covered by aquatic soil. No further fertilising will be required for the rest of the season.
